Here is my Craziest Dream...
My father is a seasoned pianist and arranger who has played with the likes of Roy Eldridge, Gene Krupa, and Bobby Hackett, just to name a few. I've looked up to him all my life while singing along with Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald records, imagining my father as Teddy Wilson and myself as Billie... then I was able to live that dream while making my very first full-length, independently-released CD.

That is the story of Herb Gardner and Abbie Gardner. The father-daughter team that has been compared to Nat King Cole and his daughter, Natalie, except that they are still alive and well. In fact, they've only just begun.
