What a great Thanksgiving with the family it was. We cleaned out the attic a little bit, remembered the past and moved ourselves solidly into the future with a little less baggage. Time for a new paradigm shift. This used to be my favorite song to play back in the Parakeet Nelson days. This recording has a great trumpet solo by Mike Elam and also features my first collaboration with Dwayne Wallace and Winslow Willard. Thanks for listening!
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
