Songs For Isaac - twelve new songs of joy and sorrow.
For Dylan Isaac who would have gotten the jokes and laughed with his belly, elegantly danced to the rhythms on suede bottomed shoes, and cried at the heartache with more empathy than a man can stand. Love, you brother…missing you always.
Special thanks to all the folks who helped – the band who gave of themselves to breath life into my songs - the engineers who heard the music for the sound - the family for putting up with it all, and to all the friends, family, colleagues, and students who have helped me focus on what love can still make possible. You all bring my music to life.
Thanks to Paul and the Mike at the Clubhouse Recording studio
Tony for over preparing so eloquently
Bobby for flying across the country for an old friend in need
Jay for staying upright through a tough day
Brother Doug at Spotify for keeping the flame alive
Dylan Spencer for being such a great collaborator & friend
Lil, Pam, and LJ for lighting up my world
My colleagues & students at Hostos Community College who let me go to love rather than work everyday
& Lastly (but most importantly) the incredibly supportive family and friends that got me through all this… hopefully he’s that nuthatch outside my window singing along.
