Seems like cheating to make an album of the best songs with the best musicians. This record represents the jazzier selections from my live set, which always includes at least one Hoagy Carmichael song (Skylark) and one Disney song (In A World of My Own). I like to have a wide variety of genres in my performances and I love to feature songs written by my songwriter friends. On this record I am proud to include a song by Jesse Rimler (I Am Wiser Now), a very talented musician and songwriter in Oakland, CA. I am attracted to a song's melody first and foremost, and his song fit in with these other chestnuts very comfortably.
About the musicians: They are the cream of the crop. I am honored and humbled to be accompanied by such talent as these three men.
