Life in the Tropics album for sale Product Description

Life in the Tropics album for sale by Rippingtons was released Oct 10, 2000 on the Concord Jazz label. Life in the Tropics -- the first Peak Records release for the Rippingtons -- features guitarist Russ Freeman and is a great smooth jazz celebration of rhythmic delights that resemble the tropical splendor of an island oasis. The natural beauty of each composition is reflected by the great talents of the Rippingtons: Kim Stone on bass, Dave Kochanski on keyboards, Ramon Yslas on percussion, and Dave Hooper on drums, along with special guests the great saxophonists Dave Koz, Eric Marienthal, and Paul Taylor, keyboardist Bob James, and guitarist Peter White. Life in the Tropics CD music is a 2-disc set with 11 songs.   ...See Full Description

Average Rating:4.5 stars
4 starsGood driving tunes or background at work
Life in the Tropics buy CD music Better guitar work than I was anticipating. Preferred the instrumentals to the two vocals, but hey, bought it for the instrumentals! Nice for driving a winding road or keeping me enthused at the office while I'm working on computer keyboard.

Rip It Up!
Life in the Tropics CD music As an old Freeman fan, he still has that touch! I can still appreciate every tune he lays down going back to NOCTURNAL PLAYGROUND! He has added some very highly qualified cats to this vinal to make another Rippin CD! No dangeling chads on this one! Keep it up Russ!
