Let Me Be Frank The title of my CD "Let Me Be frank" is not only the title, it also symbolizes my feelings for the music I hold near and dear. Music can trigger emotions and memories. Music gives me the support I need to get through the hard times and to celebrate the good times. No matter what your mood, there is a song that expresses it. Music is always near. Lyrics complete a song and tell a story. Each musician and each listener interprets the song in a unique way, bringing to it their own experiences, memories and emotions. In relationships, too, each person interprets, reacts and behaves according to their own history and background. Music and relationships, they are inseparable. I do not know one without the other. The people we are close to and who influence us the most have the same interests. The actor, artist, dancer, musician and audience are drawn to one another in appreciation of the art and the artist's talent. Music and dance are the only art forms that exist in a moment in time and then they are gone. No two performances are ever exactly the same. That makes music exciting, challenging, humbling and very rewarding. I wanted the music on this CD to be spontaneous, to convey that "moment in time" feeling. I asked my musicians to come to the studio not knowing what tunes we were playing. We talked over each number before recording, and recorded the first take on all. The result is fresh, original and creative. It is a privilege to play with my fellow musicians on this recording: Mike Murphy (drums). Theo Meriwether (piano). Gary Williams (guitar).
