A Note From The Director

From the liner notes:

We hope you enjoy these sounds that have taken us a lifetime to develope. We started creating our music nearly fourty years ago as enthusiastic young men in high school and college with aspirations to perform together and share our music with fellow dreamers. We practced hard, celebrated wonderful times together as best friends, and played professionally in the hottest jazz venues of the times.

In 1959 our dream was put on hold when our trumpet player, yours truely, was drafted into the U.S. Army. The years passed and we went our seperate ways, maintained our independent professional lives, but kept our dream close by. While we each cultivated accomplished casreers in business, engineering, academia, and music, we never lost touch with each other. In fact, music and friendship became more and more important as the years went by.

Now, four decades after our dream began, we are ready to rekindle it. Won't you join us as we give life to the harmony and rhythm of our enduring friendships, musical passion, and lifelong dreams?

Sincerely,
Dr. Rick Luindquist
Director
