 Q: “The [Bill Mays] Quintet, what kind of music is it that you’re…”

 

A: “Well, I've written some music that's philosophically based and it's about family and friends, and I would like maybe that the project were titled something that kept that in mind. Dedication pieces to family and friends, both living and past. And one of the pieces is kind of an extended suite that I wrote from wedding called the Adirondack Wedding Serenade. That would be one of the things that we'd like to put on it.”
