Product Notes

Tempting Fate is Cat Austin's fine collaboration with some of the best musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is a jazzy journey encompassing many styles, from funky smart hip hop to samba to lush colorful romantic ballads and heartfelt love songs. The album brings together former Tower of Power lead sax player Norbert Stachel, funky guitar master Ray Obiedo and his unique jazzy R&B style, and the Van Wageningen brothers, Mark and Paul on bass and drums. Mark has played with artists such as George Duke, Sheila E, Paul Winter, Stan Getz and Dianne Reeves. Paul Van Wageningen has performed with Pete Escovedo, Sheila E, Tito Puente, Stan Getz, Andy Narell, Steve Erquiaga, to name a few. Percussion legend John Santos is also featured, adding his deep knowledge of latin jazz to create a very modern creative blend of rhythm with Paul's drumming. John Simon plays keyboards and wrote many of the songs on the album. John's playing is rich and inviting. Skillfully blending his lyrics and music, Tempting Fate is a thoughtful, insightful and rewarding musical journey. Cat's unique and heartful voice has been described by jazz diva Abbey Lincoln as "ominous and womanly". Two of Abbey's songs are on the album and receive regular radio play on jazz and smooth jazz stations in the Bay Area. Cat's singing is the magic that binds together all the talent of these fine musicians. Tempting Fate was produced with very high, exacting standards, utilizing HDCD technology in the mastering process. This creates a sonic image that is exceptionally lush, clear and 3-dimensional. It is an excellent showpiece for anyone with a fine stero system. Listen to some of the musical excerpts to get an idea of the quality of musicianship, composition and production that make Tempting Fate a truly unique work of art.
