and supported me in my life long love for music. I only regret that dad didn't live long enough to see my dreams
become a reality. I will be eternally grateful to them and for them!
Ethel feels especially blessed to have a wonderful and supportive husband Wayman, daughter Adriane, son Darrell, daughter-in-law

An extra special thanks goes to Ed Brainerd for his incredible horn arrangements that adds a touch of class and distinction
to the band. Also to Ralph Whittle not only for being fun and easy to work with, but for taking the time to write charts for
songs we can't find in spite of your busy schedule. The invaluable time, energy, and input from both of you is truly priceless!
