Awesome 27 Jun 2007

Format: Audio CD
Bates is one of the greatest composers/arrangers around. Always has a bit of British humour in his music. This is worth it just for the arrangement of New York New York

Django Bates is a brilliant composer ! 21 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The music on Like Life is a wild blend of meter and melody filled with masterful performances by Bates and his orchestra. The compositions are a exciting and fresh, mixing elements of jazz, classical, and British flare - a must listen !

You can't have everything- 20 May 1999
By Bongo Herbert - Published on
Format: Audio CD
But you can really dig on this album. I've been a big Bates fan for quite a while, ever since listening to him on a Hank Roberts (cellist) album. This album is definately up there with his other efforts, compositionally it is very strong, performance is first rate also. Grab a pint, put it on the turntable, and pay attention.
