The title track from our 2004 Grammy-nominated CD, Get Well Soon was a wish for my dear Norwegian friend Jan Horne, who was recovering from cancer. He and his lady, Kirsten, were our witnesses when we married in Norway in 1988 and we have been friends for 22 years.

This is a great showcase for our tenor player, Paul Heller. He had a very difficult task for an improviser – basically playing over one chord type (a half-diminished) which shifts around a narrow center and gives you, in essence, a pair of handcuffs to deal with. His response was amazing AND he gets excited!!! He screams with delight! – a stunning performance.
