This 'Overture' is the opening piece of my new album for 2019 It's called...VistaRama Deluxe. The inspiration for this introductory piece, comes from years listening to the wonderful UK 'Art-Rock' band, Be Bop Deluxe.

A song from my latest music project...'VistaRama Deluxe'. Music inspired by some of the musical avenues explored by Bill Nelson / Be Bop Deluxe in the 1970s. This song has an obvious 'reggae' vibe.
