Rod Tate – The Emerald Coast

The Emerald CoastThis CD was inspired by Rod’s visit to the Emerald Coast, in Destin Florida. While there performing, Rod was completely awed and inspired by the beauty along the coastline. He said, “The coastline oozes with inspiration and the awesomeness of God in creation”. His hope is that he was able to transfer musically the inspiration, the deep emotion he experienced by walking along the coastline of, “The Emerald Coast”. If you love beautiful melodies, head bobbin’ grooves, romance and soulfulness in your Smooth/Contemporary Jazz this CD was made with you in mind.
