"Of all the musicians I've played with, none has touched people's hearts more than Doc Cheatham. His humanity charm and good naturedness rode on every note. . . . I was lucky beyond words to play so many, many gigs - for nearly a quarter of a century - with that extraordinary guy. And to be his close friend, as was my wife, Jane. Doc's spirit will be with me all the way down the road." Chuck Folds.
Chuck Fold performed regularly with Doc Cheatham at the Sunday Brunch at Sweet Basil in New York City for almost 17 years, as, for varying times, did all of the musicians on this recording. After Doc Cheatham's death in June, 1997, Chuck took over the leadership of the Sunday Brunch, which continues to this day.
