This CD is titled Once in a Million Moons because it is such a beautiful song, and because that’s about how often I get to record. So first thanks are due to Patrick McIntyre, without whose faith and support I would have had to record Once in Two Million Moons.

Molly Mason and Jay Ungar for what seems like a lifetime of encouragement and gentle leading, and to Ashokan Swing Week, where I, and many others, learn and laugh, and sing and dance.

Tex Arnold, for your wit and clarity and your desire to make it perfect. I am in the presence of a master, and I know it.

Wendy Lane Bailey, for the friendship you and your family have wrapped around me.

John Jones and and George Hall, for your friendship and counsel. Your censure would o’erweigh a whole theatre of others.

Erv Raible, for inviting me to join the faculty of The International Cabaret Conference at Yale, where I first met Tex and Wendy and George. It’s an honor, sir.

Marge Rivingston, voice teacher and friend, for our long and continuing association. I do not know what I would do without you.

My family, those present and those already gone, for the music that flows in my veins and the voice to sing it with, and for your love.

Rev. Victoria Sirota, for your prayers, and for walking with me in discernment and love.

Song angels Pam Massé, Dave Davies, and William Baldwin Young, for your suggestions, and Bram Lewis, for your support.

Finally, BobbyCat, who walked on during the recording. And Mrs. Peel, who has arrived. Mrrrow!
