About Ricky Peterson
A life long Minnesotan whose sound has always focused on a characteristically “Minneapolis” sound, Ricky Peterson is best known for his now 20 year association with saxophone legend David Sanborn and for having, produced, written and played keyboards for Prince on and off since his early days on the Twin Cities scene (perhaps most notably producing and arranging the song “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”). This is just the icing on a career whose associations (either live or in the studio) read like a diverse pop and jazz trivia encyclopedia: Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Anita Baker, Mavis Staples,Ben Sidran, Rick Braun, Kirk Whalum, Steve Miller Band, Boz Scaggs, Dave Koz, Lalah Hathaway, Jonathon Butler, Chaka Khan, Robben Ford and John Mayer.
