Senior Song Book is a masterpiece created by two friends who “just wanted to have fun.” 102-year-old lyricist Alan R. Tripp and the 88-year-old jazz pianist Marvin Weisbord came up with this remarkable album that contains eight songs and two remixes.
“So we’re writing songs that are recognizable, in genres that are recognizable, with lyrics telling stories about what our lives are like now,” Wisbord told Hannah Batanson of the Washington Post.
According to Tripp, who lives in a retirement community in Pennsylvania with his pals, they have never intended to gain profit, they just wanted to have fun.
“The synergism between us is very simple. We admire the same people, the same songwriters, but at the same time we are us, and the fact that we get along together so well is a miracle.”
