I hope that you enjoy these contemporary instrumentals. The songs reflect my visions of lovely skies and majestic landscapes. They also bring fond memories of musical projects from different seasons of my life.
The album includes twelve original songs and four cover songs that I recorded for various projects with musicians whom I have had the privilege of working with over the years. Thank you to the musicians, friends and colleagues who enhanced these songs with your God-given talents and skills!
I hope the music brings you much joy!

“This project is a thoroughly enjoyable offering, and if I wore a hat, I’d certainly be taking it off to Peggy and friends. High marks for arrangements and production as well.”
– Michele Wilson-Morris, (The Entertainment Bank)
“With mad skills and a great attitude, Duquesnel is a stock whose arrow is pointing straight up.”
– Brent Black, (Critical Jazz)
– “One truly admirable piece of art.” “The magnetism of the subtle and well-arranged “Bird on a Leash” is appealing and classy with Lorber on keys and Braun’s trumpet complementing the piano of Duquesnel.” The cover of the 1971 Carpenters melodically sweet tune “Rainy Days and Mondays” shows off Duquesnel’s piano skills handsomely.”
– Ronald Jackson, (Smooth Jazz Ride)
