A Note From The Director

From the liner notes:

Following our first album, Rekindling the Dream, our musical fire is burning strongly as we begin this new century. In Reclaiming Independence, our new album, we feel we are making even better music than when we began forty-five years ago in Philadelphia. Gathering to perform together across the country, in spite of our respective professional careers, has brought us closer together, with an increasing fire of feeling of commitment, warmth of community and joy of rediscovery. Musically, we share the same values - that music should be lyrical and listenable, energetic and exciting. It should free us, and allow us all to feel wonderful!

As we have growm personally, with increased wisdom and maturity, we are also more comfortable with ourselves and with each other, onstage and off. Through experiencing the eclectic passages of life, music and friendships have become even more important to us. Because of that growth, we as a band are also better able to feature group members individually expressing their own artistic independence, tempered with mutual musical support and encouragement. In turn, we hope our music will help you discover the sense of independence within your own soul.

Sincerely,
Dr. Rick Lundquist
Director
