This latest album commemorates my 80th birthday and my attitude, namely 'No Regrets.' Most of the tunes are 'up' but there are a few ballads for contrast. I am happy to have some of my favorite musicians with me. Although this is my first outing with Kenny Elliott on drums, both Robert Kyle (sax and flute) and Tomas Gargano (bass) have been on most of my CDs. The beat is reminiscent of my background in Kansas City, with a hint of the blues.
