This piece was composed and recorded in one session, sort of on the fly. The time was the early 90’s, so the synths and software are vintage – an Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler sequenced with Bars and Pipes Pro on an Amiga computer. The “drum solo” was a Yamaha FB-01, an early FM synth. The piece was titled after the recording; the tune reminded me of the sun beating down on a hot, dry day.
This was a collaboration with Tom Baldwin. Tom wrote the tune and performed the guitar tracks.

There are some lyrics for this, but since neither of us can sing, it remains an instrumental. Caribbean Sunset was included on a compilation CD from various artists called The Mix.
