Dedication: This film is dedicated to my father who inspired me to tell his story, and to my mother whose love, strength and support enabled me to tell it… and to the musicians whose work is the backbeat to the soundtrack of our lives… Your music lives on forever.

In Memoriam: In Loving Memory Al Casey, Earl Palmer, Julius Wechter, Larry Levine, Lew McCreary, Stan Ross and Tommy Tedesco

    During the credits we see pictures and video clips of the various musicians. Afterwards, we hear a funny joke about trombone players. That's followed by a rimshot, and the following disclaimer: "No musicians were harmed in the making of this film and no drum machines were ever used."
