Best of Everything
Thanks to the success of my debut CD,'Finally Alone with You',I have decided to do it one more time.....for posterity!! The making of this CD was really a work of joy.It was especially rewarding working with friends & colleagues.Having said that I would like to acknowledge Mr. Bill Coleman[Guitarist/Arranger,who you can hear on 'I'am not Alone,also vocalist, Robin Wilkenson,who's impeccable style & impressions can be heard on 'Quando,Quando',and 'You'll Never Find'. It was an exceptional pleasure working with my engineer,Chuck Hemann,whose meticulous mixing work was the icing on the cake.As most of my fans know music has been apart of my life from the early beginnings while attending Jamaica High School in Queens,New York.That is where I along with four other classmates formed the now legendary Doo-Wop vocal group 'The Cleftones.As they say those were the good old days when Rock'n' Roll was in it's infancy.Now that that part of my career is over I have embarked on a solo career singing 'The American Songbook. These songs will live well into generations to come.I have enjoyed my solo career thoroughly, performing at the various country clubs& venues here in South Florida.I was especially fortunate to have been invited to the '2005 JAZZ ON THE BEACH concert held on Singer Island,Riviera Beach,Florida.That was a joyous occasion in that I was able to share the bill with the likes of Roberta Flack & Isaac Hayes& Chaka Khan.Music,singing has been my passion and will continue to be until I just can't go any longer.Hopefully I will last like the great Tony Bennett.My only regret is that I did not do this sooner where my beautiful family members could have shared with me.Therefore, I dedicate this CD to my mother&father,Gladys& Ulysses,my sister,Joan&to my sons Kenneth & Troy who not enough time was spent.Also to my childhood friend & fellow 'Cleftone',Mr.Charles James for his undying support & encouragement through out the years.Last but not the least, my loving wife Lydia who is my number one fan!!!I would just like to say to all my fans[ hopefully, new ones too,]'MUSIC IS THE UNIFYING FORCE,IT BESPEAKS POSSIBILITIES OF HOPE & GRACE,THAT IS LOCKED WITHIN US'-----SO ENJOY & I WISH YOU ALL 'THE BEST OF EVERYTHING!!!
