It has been a long road for all those involved in the project , which was only able to be completed after a successful crowd funding campaign which ended in May 2013. Also sadly arranger Bill Zaccagni passed away in 2007 , unable to see the completion of his work. It is because of this the album is also viewed as a tribute to to Bill Zaccagni and the great work he has done in service to music.
The album is set for local release (Philadelphia area) on March 14th which will include a live +30 musician concert with the University of Delaware big band and string orchestra conducted by Tom Palmer preforming the entire album at World Cafe Live . The national release will come a month later on April 14.
