Album Notes
"Grace for Three" tells a poignant story about a little girl and her mom setting a table for dad, who is not coming home from war. It was inspired by a White Table ceremony of remembrance at the Episcopal School of Acadiana lower school in Lafayette, Louisiana, where pre-kindergarten children prepared a White Table with their teacher, who was a Navy veteran that discussed the meaning of the White Table during the ceremony with veterans who served as far back as Iwo Jima. The visual impact of a child setting a table with her teacher evoked the image of a little girl and her mom learning how to be strong together in a fashion that embraces the price paid by heroes and the price paid by their survivors that are the other heroes who must stay in the struggle long after the ultimate price is paid for freedom.

The song was recorded with Charlene Howard Folse on vocals at Dockside Studio, which is a legendary place along Bayou Vermillion in Louisiana. While "Grace for Three" was arranged for a bigger ensemble of instruments, Charlene's powerfully soulful voice that is particularly stunning in the bridge offered the possibility of arranging the song with nothing more than a piano and a singer.

Songs like "Grace for Three" are the result of classical piano training by a gifted but humorless and militant music teacher that alienated Kohlie from piano until the unexpected discovery of wonderful music by people like Professor Longhair, Tuts Washington, Allen Toussaint, Randy Newman, John Prine, and others that caused Kohlie to return to piano to explore ideas, moods, and emotional stories in songs that ultimately are the result of the foundation thoughtfully laid by the piano teacher who was right all along.
