1. Ted, Dan (my father) at the piano, & me, also on Father's Day 1997, later in the day.
My father was also a musician, a child prodigy on the violin, a successful songwriter in the 1930's, and Music Supervisor at Warner Bros. for about 45 yrs. Needless to say Ted & he had lots in common & adored each other.

2. Irwin (Ted's father) me, & Ted at "Dukes" in Malibu, Father's Day 1997. Irwin was a bit "tough" on the outside but actually was a real softy, kindhearted. He absolutely adored Ted, and was especially proud of him. Irwin bought Ted his first guitar, a Gibson - you could say he helped plant & nourish the seeds of Ted's genius.

3. Ted relaxing with "our son" Quincy - who loved Ted, and of course, the feeling was mutual. Quincy knew the sound of Ted's car & would perk right up. He knew "Daddy" was home even before I did.

Thanks for posting these wonderful photos. It shows another side of Ted. The story of Quincy perking up at the sound of Ted's car is very funny.

Thank you, Barbara for posting these and other photos of Ted.  I only knew Ted as a great teacher, and I felt he was a friend who cared about me, yet I like to see him in other settings, as you share with us in these "home" shots.

Will these eventually be placed in the photos section of this website?

Ted once said his students were his children. This is a very thoughtful post Barbara.

I'm glad the photos are enjoyable. It is my pleasure to share.

I don't know where the photos will eventually be posted, if anywhere. I'm not sure what's going on with the "photo site". I've posted photos "everywhere" I'm not even sure I remember where. Re the photo site - let's ask Leon! Leon?

Barbara,

What is the full title of the song that Ted's dad is playing?

Thanks.

Actually I got the captions mixed up for the pictures. 'Tis MY father who is playing the piano, it's one of my father's original songs "I Can't Afford to Send You Roses" recorded by Sammy Kaye around 1947.

Thanks for reminding me, I just rearranged the captions!!! B.
