One Godly thank you to the man upstairs high in the clouds, whom one day we will all meet, who helped me make this CD possible! What a fun project to write, record, & produce! All of the songs were a blast to write, but the one dearest to my heart is track #9 which I devoted to my mother. A really special mother who has encouraged me to follow my music journey to music school in Boston and onward to California. This song captures all of my emotions in thanking Mom for being such a special, loving, and caring person in my life. This one’s for you Mom! Love ya lots!

A special thanks to 2 of my fantastic piano teachers: Bob Lilarose, my first piano teacher from age 6 to 11 years and my college teacher, Emanuel “Mr. Z” Zambelli from Berklee College of Music in Boston. I will forever remember your guidance and teachings…Thank you for everything!

A huge thank you to my very special niece Rebecca Righi, for shooting the fun photo session of me on the piano.. You captured the moment Rebecca! Love you!

A gigantic thank you to everyone who played on this project for me! My dream to complete this CD in 5 months was made possible by all of us working together with our crazy schedules! Again, from the bottom of my heart. A huge thank you to everyone in making these songs come may God bless all of you….You all rock!

Godspeed, Joe
