Story

FUN is the key note to this song. The concept for it was born from summertime fun — the Saratoga Race Track , Saratoga Performing Arts Center, all the hot blues and jazz clubs,tasty restaurants,the Saratoga County Fair!Love it! AND this is the community where my friend, co-writer and producer,Tony Perrino,with whom I started some concepts of this song,has his home and studio.So I have gotten to know Saratoga Springs, in Upstate New York, very well.

The recording of this song was rich with fun, laughs, outrageously great musicians & producers (Mark Cargill & Greg Cook). The song is introduced by one of my all time favorite trumpet players, Andrew Carney. He adds a crazy cool "horse whinny" which always makes me smile. The wild wonderful lady on sax is Carol Chaikin; she had us bopping. The always lovely & lyrical Cheryl McDowell-Rooks and the debonair Mr. W. added some great back-up vocals. Mr. W is the dapper "talker". "Oh, yeah!" The three of us joined voices to create the "people-at-a-party" chatter. Spontaneity plus! I laughed so hard I almost fell off my stool. Mark Cargill, co-writer/producer, added some tasty fiddle parts, and Greg Cook (co-writer/producer) contributed the cool, swinging contrast on the keyboard. So let yourself go, my dears, and ENJOY ENJOY this summertime fun song!
