"In March 2015, I went to Belgium to make my first album as a leader. I wrote some new material and arranged some standards too. I had always had the idea of recording in Studio Crescendo in Genk, as I had several CDs from there, all of which I liked the sound of. I had also heard great things about Pino Guarraci – the studio owner and engineer. I thought- wouldn’t it be great to play with some of my favourite players from Belgium/Holland? So I called Philippe Aerts, Hans van Oosterhout and Jean Paul Estiévenart. I was happy they all wanted to do it, and I had a great time recording it!" Dan Whieldon
