Grammy winner Billy Williams produced this 2nd CD for me. We had a lot of fun with the project. These are fairly recent compositions of mine, except for "The Years Of You And Me" written by a couple of friends. Billy helped me finish "Mambo For You", and Betty helped me with lyrics on "Thanks To You."
I hope you enjoy it.
