about

This album is a tribute to Abe's dad, Ed Rosenberg, who passed away in 2011. He was Abe's first music teacher and they played music together for over 15 years. Ed had many original songs however very few of them were ever recorded or made available for people to listen to after his death. The intent of this album is to preserve the original songs that Ed taught to Abe for all time and to share Ed's music with the world. Today, Abe and Morgan are the heart of the band Sweet Radish and they have created this tribute to Ed's music with the sweet vocals of Morgan Velasquez and the instrumentation of Abe Rosenberg. They have also included a track called "Ed's Song" which is written by Abe Rosenberg and was written for his father.
