Saisse recorded the album with a basic line-up of Simon Phillips (The Who, Mick Jagger, Toto, Jeff Beck) on Drums, Pino Palladino (John Mayer, The Who, Di Angelo, Erykah Badu, Eric Clapton) on Bass, and KOCH recording artist Jeff Golub (Rod Stewart) on Guitar. Utilizing the Internet, he tapped into musicians from London, New York, and even Japan, who all recorded their parts live, and sent them to his Los Angeles-based studio, where he produced and orchestrated the project into a seamless whole. These contributors included Angélique Kidjo, Rick Braun, Jeff Beal, Kirk Whalum, Michael Davis and David Rice. The entire record was mixed with Co-producer and Engineer Goh Hotoda in Tokyo, Japan; and the result is a stunning kaleidoscope of musical adventure.
