ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Deciding what to title this album was a toss up! The first song, Small Day Tomorrow (music by my pal Bob Dorough and lyric by Fran Landesman), I think of as my ode to corporate life. I had originally intended this as my CD title; however, the third song The Performer (by Kenny Vance and Gordon Kaswell), felt right since a performer is what I’ve very happily become. I love singing, performing and all that is involved with making music.

This CD marks my 5-year anniversary as a “dedicated full-time” vocalist and bandleader. What a wonderful journey it’s been! The songs represent a wider swath of "musical genre" similar to one of my live performances. The musicians, who are my core group in Dallas and who inspire me on the bandstand, perform with me here. Individually and collectively, they have shared their talents and knowledge and have helped bring this project to life.

Band Personnel -
Brad Williams (keys, piano, synth) Jonathan Fisher (upright, electric bass) Andrew Griffith (drum set) Jorge Ginorio (percussion) Todd Parsnow (guitars) Mario Cruz (tenor sax, flute,) Shelley Carrol (tenor sax ,flute, alto flute) Joyce Spencer (alto sax), Paul Elder (bass clarinet), Tony Baker( trombone) Dave Pierce (trombone)

Thanks for listening ....Enjoy!
