This album features the second band of musicians brought from the US to Belgium by Steve Houben after his studies at Berklee in Boston. These musicians lived in Belgium for a while. The band was completed with the addition of Michel Herr on keyboards. In this electric band, with fusion and funk influences, the contribution of Bill Frisell is already unmistakable.
