My sincere thanks to Paul Wilborn for making this an easy and enjoyable experience. I love playing the Side Door. It is a wonderful venue. Thanks also to Damon Dougherty for his help with the sound set-up, to Josh Wykell for his patience and expertise, to Danny Ellis for taking on the mastering and doing a great job, and to Nancy Jones and all the staff at the Palladium.
I met Colin Farrell in September of 2012 when we first played together. He's not just a great musician but a great person to work with as well. His accompaniments and solo tunes add so much to this recording.
