Under Palm Trees
This music is the type you would hear on vacation in Florida or California, and on some Tropical Islands. It is a warm and peaceful blend of harmonious sound. The arrangements are loaded with hidden spices, that come forward to vibrate throughout your entire body. This disc takes you on a pleasurable journey from the beginning with Bob to the end with Hardy.
