The Peace-Maker is an album by American saxophonist Harold Land recorded in late 1967 and early 1968 for the Cadet label.

AllMusic Review by Jason Ankeny:
The first pairing of tenor saxophonist Harold Land and vibist Bobby Hutcherson crackles with the energy and joy of collaboration. Each spurs the other to new zeniths of creativity and craft, yielding one of the finest if little-known jazz LPs of its era. The Peace-Maker is a particularly apt title. The record’s serene, supple contours glow with a lyricism that eschews the angularity of bop. Land’s graceful sax melds perfectly with Hutcherson’s warm, shimmering vibes to create a deeply soulful, even divine sound. His original compositions are no less thoughtful, galvanized by a yearning for harmony that embraces all senses of the term (https://goo.gl/qotyUg).
