Special 'Thank You's to Sir John Spinelli of Seminole Music & Sound for the on-going sponsorship and great hang, David Haney of Zendrum Corporation for his truly unique and game-changing instrument. A fond shout-out to some world class musicians and friends who I shared performances with throughout: Justino Lee Walker, Jalon King,Thomas Griggs, and Miami's Harry D.
