“The production of this album was probably the most exciting event in my career to date as an orchestra leader-producer. My appreciation is extended to all of the musicians who performed to 500% maximum of their special talents, and to the Dave Wilson Singers for their excellent voices. A special note of thanks to all of the soloists – Roger Kellaway for his superb keyboard mastery; the tenor wizardry of Don Menza; the juicy trombone solo of Carl Fontana; the excitable trumpet notations of Bobby Bryant; the wild Deasy guitar fills; the multi-talented many-horned Buddy Childers. A special note of appreciation of a rhythm section that a band leader often dreams about and hopes for, but seldom realizes. The notes, all placed with such delicate talent, are the devotion of Billy Byers, whom I consider one of the true musical geniuses of our era. And last but not least, my deep esteem to the true engineering ears of the master of the recording console, and my dear friend, John Neal. And particular regard to United-Western Recording Corporation for such great studios and the finest cooperation and help I’ve ever received in any recording production.” – Dan Terry
