Many heartfelt thamks to his "little brother," Dave Howard who arranged and produced this album as well as playing almost all the instruments. "This is an album that my brother Dave and I worked on for years. I sing and play guitar. Most of the bass lines were played by me on a midi guitar. Gary Brandin came in and did a stellar pedal steel part for "Night Life." Everything else was arranged amd played by my brother Dave Howard - percussion, strings, horns, keyboard - everything.
When I first started working up the Standards back in the early 80s, everybody said I was crazy - no one wanted to listen to their parents' music. Then Ronstadt did her first album with Nelson Riddle and all of a sudden, this music was cool. It took me many years to get this project together and done and I owe it all to my brother, Dave. In many ways, this is more his album than mine." Contact Dave Howard at firstname.lastname@example.org)
