"Big Ed" Wetteland

 "Big Ed" Wetteland

"Forever & A Day" was an album that Maria recorded live at the Banquet Sound Studios in the winter of 2006 along with the legendary Ed Wetteland on piano, as a tribute to her parents, who loved the early jazz classics of the 1920's-40's-- the music of their childhoods.  These songs are from a less-complicated day and age, songs that relied upon beautiful melodies delivered by true musicians, songs that Maria grew up listening to in her formative years, all of which makes this album close to her heart.  To make it even more dear, her own young daughters Lucia and Ismena Jameau sang on two of the tracks at 4 and 6 years old (Glory of Love & I Can't Give You Anything But Love).
