thank you to jan stevens who inspired, encouraged, and guided me to go "acoustic;" to ed blau for his counsel
and friendship; and to michael morris for making sure the music was heard.
to pam, marc, alan, peter, and suzie words cannot express my gratitude.
i am humbled by the talent and generosity of the musicians on this recording, and those i have been privileged to
write and perform with over the last 10 years. this music is a reflection of the life that has happened in that time.
special thanks to the best friends that anyone could ever hope for.
dedicated to my family. sylvia, scott and michael
