It gives me great pleasure
to once again find myself in the midst of expressing my thoughts about another recording of my work. The Creator had blessed me with the opportunity to have the wonderfully creative bass, tuba, and didjeridoo performer Tom Abbs, who has been with me for slightly over a decade, together with two of the most unique, musically diverse and culturally aware percussionists today – Michael Wimberly and Guillermo E. Brown. These gentlemen are true pfrofessionals both on and off the bandstand, which is a great pleasure for me to state. The works on this recording are organic and unpretentious, laced with the type of communication that can only be obtained, and experienced by those who are truly kindred spirits.
I would like to give special thanks to my family for always providing me with their unconditional love and support, ASCAP, windsmith Bill Singer who I refer to as “The Medic”, Jim Staley & Roulette, The Maccaferri Family’s French American Reed Company makers of the MyMasterpiece reed, and of course Danas Mikailonis, who’s vision along with No Business Records has made this recording possible. To all those worldwide who continue to appreciate my work, I salute you and look forward to the sharing of many more musical moments. Peace & Blessings. — Andrew Lamb
