This album has been five years, a thousand gigs, and roughly four million inside jokes in the making, and I’m so lucky to be surrounded by these crazy talented and supportive goofballs. To all the musicians on this record: I love and appreciate all of you so much, and I want to make music with you forever. I hope that’s cool. Thank you Wycliffe Gordon for lending your remarkable talents and for being such an inspiring, positive presence! Thank you to every engineer who gave their time and creative energy to this album! Especially to Jim Hamilton and the crew at Rittenhouse Soundworks for the endless cups of tea and conversation and to Jack Klotz and Vince Leonard for your trusted input and ears. And a very special thank you to my Kickstarter backers! Your generosity and excitement made this project possible. And while I can’t really put my gratitude into words, thank you to my family and friends for always believing in this. And in me.
