On this album bandleader Joris Dudli presents himself as a Jazz singer for the first time. He has a very special approach and sound! About half of the tracks have vocals. Also one song (the great Summertime) with lady singer Carole Alston is presented. The backing band (with various line-ups) is always great, with lots of very creative moments.
