Dedication

To my daughter Rachel and Maddie, her new baby girl. The opening set has special meaning, with Metheny, McFerrin and Getz. Following are two of the brightest young bassists to come out of the Hartford area; Matt Dwonszyk and Dezron Douglas, with new albums showing their stuff. We've also got music from veteran alto sax players Garrett and Abate.
