|We were riding home from a job in Cleveland with "Sir Bentley" and listening to a Jeff Lorber trac in the car. The guys were saying how great that was, and it would be nice to play some music like that. So I told them I would write some and we would do it. A few months later this session produced four funk/ fusion instrumentals - "Syncoplaytion" being one of them.
||Recorded and mixed by Gary Rhamey at Peppermint Studios in Youngstown, Ohio

|Capture jazz trio and vocalist in live, intimate, jazz club setting. Engineer Frank Cataldo expertly recorded this in a salon meeting room at The Strathallan Hotel - Rochester, NY in early November of 1996.
||The dismal and rainy "end of fall" weather outside definitely helped set the mood for this melancholy ballad - beautifully emoted by Nancy DeLeo.
