And it began. . .
With a love for jazz standards a few songs I'd written, I jumped in on a project. Questioning hiring recommended musicians I didn't know for the first album, I was absolutely (and happily) surprised at how amazing and incredibly talented they were -- after recording the first song in the studio I was in awe and thrilled! Sharing tracks from the first recording session with my friend (and guitarist) Doug Mann, he nodded as I couldn't stop smiling .... this is why ... this is why .... this is why you hire this caliber of musicians. Well, that was it -- the name of the first cd which was previously undecided -- "this is why" ...
I hope you'll love it!
A lovely lady named Effie Joy reached out to me on myspace many years ago and said she wrote a song called Endlessly. She'd wanted Diana Krall to hear/sing it but Effie thought that was a bit out of reach, so she came to me. I listened, I liked it, I played it on the piano and sang it -- but Effie's slow, romantic melody turned into a snappy tune as it blossomed in my mind and I fell in love with it... so much that I made it the title cut on the album. I was honored to have Effie Joy join us for the LA Music Awards the year the album came out -- she was a hoot!
Effie.... I know you're listening from Heaven . . .

one Father's Day ...
And it was played for the father-daughter dance at my wedding
This song is also on the "this is why" album (different version) --
but this first recording is simple and sweet...
My dad was in studio during recording with John Walsh on bass
and Frank Rowland on drums.
I hope you'll enjoy it ...
