It Might As Well Be Spring: This song is dedicated to Bob Centano who was a great friend. Bob was a band leader and sax player who helped me get experience by allowing me to sing with his band. When we worked a gig, we would sing this song together near the end of the gig.

Emily: This song is dedicated to my good friend Rusty Jones who recently passed away and loved to play waltzes. My pianist, Tom Muellner, had me learn this song and other waltzes so when we worked with Rusty we could do them.

Change Partners: This song is one of my favorites to sing.

Autumn in New York: This song is my favorite New York song and I love singing it. I dedicate this song to all the people of New York.

Gentle Rain: heard Barbra Streisand's version of this song and fell in love with it. She sings it beautifully. It's hard singing it without reverting to her version.

Dindi: This song is dedicated to the memory of Antonio Carlos Jobin who wrote so many great songs. I get many requests to sing it.

I'm Gonna Laugh You Out of My Life: This song is dedicated to Nat King Cole and his fine rendition of it on a 1957 album “This is Nat King Cole”.

Mem'ries: This song was written by Robert Wagner. He sent it to me with some others, all of which are very nice songs. This and his Christmas song, which I am recording on my Christmas album, are my favorites.

Over the Rainbow: For years I have wanted to sing “Over the Rainbow” and tie it into “I'm Always Chasing Rainbows”. I finally did and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy singing it.

Open Up Your Heart: I wrote these lyrics to a South American song which had no English lyrics. Somehow I heard the lyrics in my head and wrote them down. Tom Muellner and I created a lead sheet.

It Happened in Chicago: This is dedicated to Kelly Brand. This melody has been in my head since I was 17 years old. I put some lyrics to the melody but never finished it. Kelly Brand was responsible for taking the notes to the song and putting chord changes and created a lead sheet. I then finished the lyrics.

More: This song is like my theme song as I mostly started my gigs singing it.

They Didn't Believe Me: This song is dedicated to the memory of my good friend Frank D'Rone who I met at his 65th birthday party. Many musicians had told me that I sounded like Frank so I shopped and found an album by him. The first album I purchased by Frank had this song on it and I fell in love with it at once. I have been singing it every since.

In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning: Back in the 50's I used to listen to a Chicago DJ, Sid McCoy, whose program went from 12:00 am to 4:00 am. This was one of his sign-off songs. Of course sung by Frank Sinatra. So this is a favorite memory of Sid McCoy.

You'll Never Know: This song is dedicated to my mother, Ignatia, and my dog, Puffit. I sang this song and dedicated to them when each one had passed away.
