This album was a result of the efforts of myself ...
my son Marcome who co-engineered the tracks on the Korg X2
and John Santamaria who provided the backing we needed to manufacture the product...
I adapted some of my old favorite songs along with a few of my original compositions...
This album features Hal Cowart on bass on Mardi Gras Medley..
Yoko and John..Higher &Higher with Mr. Lee Allen (of Fats Domino fame)on tenor sax
on Mardi Gras Medley doing an amazing one take solo...
Also featured is Sherman Bernard,Jr. playing piano on the medley...
Doc Vernon on drums...Sam Broussard on guitar(Yoko&John)...
Travis Doyle on keys(Higher)..
Marcome and I played all the instruments
and provided background vocals on the remaining tracks...
This was our 1st effort in our home studio...I hope you enjoy it!!...
Oh..The photos were taken by my brother Jerry Yates

We all love and miss him dearly
and know he is with Brother Jesus
