Excellent drumming by Heinz Lichius and the soulful sound of Joe Gallardo on trombone round out the disc. Great classic tunes are covered, along with some originals, including "My One and Only Love," "Skylark," "Besame Mucho," "Blues In The Night" and "No X-Cess Baggage Blues."

"This was, without exaggeration, one of the best acoustics-related technical decisions for the NDR I have been involved in during the past few years," comments NDR sound engineer Michael Plötz. "The digital audio world now enjoys incomparably good sound thanks to the use of the AX 24 in the production chain of this studio. The combination of a DAD AX24 and the SSL Duality console places us in a new 'analog/digital world'".
