Exciting - George Cates

Royal Blue (George Cates)
Where There's Life (George Cates-Russ David)

Exciting? Well, yes the cover art is pretty fabulous and the set, a finely crafted pop mood collection that is penned mostly by Cates and features just enough "space age" energy to make for an engaging play through.

Also see Cate's "exotica" album: Polynesian Percussion

Double Gaited
Rio Batucada
Royal Blue
Where There's Life
Champagne Time
Dance From Bonjour Tristesse
