This recording is dedicated especially to the memory of Mr. Arnold Jacobs.   Your contributions to our awareness of art, beauty of sound, and knowledge of our craft will be remembered for many years to come as will your presence among us be missed.

This recording is also dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and colleague, Richard E. Norment III who passed from this life suddenly in March of 1999.  Richard plays on this recording but did not see its release.  Richard's extensive contributions to our state's cultural life were only overshadowed by his generous personality and wit.  We hope you and Gabe will break up sectionals long enough to look in from time to time, Richard.
