About the album
Alto saxophonist Bart Wirtz had a dream: Recording a CD with an American allstarband in New York. Challenge Records offered him this opportunity. And a dream came true.
World famous trumpet player Nicholas Payton, a big fan of Wirtz' hardjazzband Monsieur Dubois, was eager to co-operate in this project. Bassist Richie Goods was next. And last but not least pianist Xavier Davis and drummer Kendrick Scott, a member of the band of Herbie Hancock. And so a line-up of extraordinary quality was founded. And of pure chemistry, which can be heard from the first note.
