Editor/Smooth Jazz Therapy
...Formin’s spellbinding piano introduction unlocks the door to Cates mellow interpretation of the Legrand classic ‘Windmills’ and their sensitive rendition of the timeless ‘Try A Little Tenderness’ is, without question, a classy piece of work. That said, the albums best track is arguably ‘Sidney’s Song’. Dedicated to all children with Downs Syndrome this tender self penned instrumental finds Cates and Fomin at their spectacular best.

Frank Nakashima

If you love great smooth jazz, you'd be crazy not to buy this recording. These guys are monster talents with chops to burn. Cates and Fomin are the "Real Deal."

Scott O'Brien Review
Demo Cates and Stan Fomin are both huge Smooth Jazz stars in Canada, with impressive credentials, not the least of which are numerous Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards nominations and #1 hits on the Wave 94.7 (Windsor, Ontario) Playlist. Now these two amazing talents have formed The Cates Fomin Project and it’s proving to be greater than the sum of its parts. Their new release, JOURNEY WITH US, is filled with sensuous and emotional performances that will surely impress you as much as they do me. The soulful vocals and sax work from Detroit-born Demo Cates, together with the brilliant keyboard work from Ukrainian-born Stan Fomin (both Toronto-based now) capture the essence of what makes the Smooth Jazz format so compelling and listenable! From the fresh new version of Cates’ hit single “I’ll Try Something New” and the live version of the equally-delightful “Just One Kiss,” this time with a Caribbean vibe, to Stan’s sensitive piano work on the instrumental “Sydney’s Song,” dedicated to all children with Downs Syndrome, this is a collection deep in rhythmic, melodic and textural variety. JOURNEY WITH US from The Cates Fomin Project is not only a perfect fit for today’s Smooth Jazz, but also for any discerning music lover’s collection!
