This was a life long musical dream for both of us and a special 50th anniversary present in 2012. Our lives together have been filled with music, family and friends who have supported us through the many years of our professional careers. With Lori and Roger’s musical direction, we were able to make this dream come true.
Thank you to George Tidwell, Denis Solee, Al Kiger, Tom Mullinex and Tom Jackson
for your great musical arrangements. Some that I have played for over 40 years, and some that are new and exciting for Nancy and I to perform live.
To Duffy, Andy, Lori and Roger- we couldn’t ask for a better, more swinging rhythm section! What an honor!
Many thanks to Sandra Dudley who coached Nancy with her Vocals. We love you!
We dedicate this CD to our parents, James Oscar Mechem, Uba Swinford and our children.
