About the Album

Personnel: Linda Dachtyl-Hammond Organ; Robert Kraut-Guitar; Jim Rupp-Drums. Composer: Linda Dauwalder-Dachtyl (ASCAP)

From the liner notes: "Les Chats Bleus is an up-tempo piece that brought Lou Bennett to my mind. It has a wonderful bridge that rolled around in my mind long after I first heard it. This one gives us perspective on LDs approach to a variety of music styles and demonstrates her control and awareness of where the music has gone and where it is going. Its the wholeness of her music that is both refreshing and impressive." --Pete Fallico

Recorded at Columbus Sound Studios. Produced by Tony Monaco. Engineered by Tony Monaco and Bill Heingartner. Dedicated to my two Russian Blue cats, Max and Misha.
