George Prince. I’m particularly impressed with the amount of blues that has been injected into this concept. It also displays a natural ability to flow between ballads and more vibrancy. The orchestration is beautifully arranged, and at times subtle elements of Miles early work. Impressive music.

Pascal Ennaert Makes you swing during the working hours, feet stamping along, smile one your face, good vibrations, ... Favorite track: Falling Water.
