Paul and I consider ourselves very fortunate and proud to be able to work with such great musicians

I am very grateful for the talents of our director at Joey Berkley and it is always a priviledge to hear him play, along with the talented members of his band Joris Teepe and Nori Naraoka on bass, Andy Abel on guitar, Gary Deinstadt on piano and Chris Parker on drums.

The terrific cover art was created by our drummer Chris Parker. Thank you Chris.
