"Smooth jazz that melts the butter on the uneaten corn."

"Tate's jazz is among the smoothest. Profoundly influenced by '70's Quiet Storm music & the seductive, throaty growl of Grover Washington Jr. He takes listeners on a journey into a world where all bed sheets are made of satin, and there is never a shortage of red wine."
