This time is special in the lives of these two friends for over forty-five years. Since Mike McCoy joined Pearson as a member of The Brothers Four in 2004, they have toured the world together as ambassadors for The American Songbook. Their album of original songs, "Between Friends," first released in the early 80's was re-mastered and released on CD with bonus tracks in 2006. Their latest album of new music, "Between Old Friends," describes in part where the journey has taken them after all these years. What helps make this collaboration special is a unique combination of professional and personal. The music illuminates the friendship, the friendship illuminates the music. For forty-five years they have literally and figuratively shared the many stages of each other's lives. The spirit is alive in the music. The musicianship is easy to measure. The friendship is easy to appreciate. "At times I felt I could not make it without him... other times I felt a needed to prove I could make it without him... this is a time where any such concerns are replaced with a spirit of all we have shared and become and I think the love we have for each other can be found in the music." - Mark Pearson talking about his professional relationship with Mike McCoy.
