- the twice winning Grammy - drummer Ulysses Owens Jr.,
- the rising pianist of the New York jazz scene Adam Birnbaum,
- the  trumpeter Tatum Greenbalt (Wynton Marsalis says he is  one of the best trumpet players of his generation)
- Miles Griffith, the inventive minds perhaps jazz vocalist of the 90's generation from which sprang.

The dream-team adds bassist Apostolos Sideris , a Greek musician who lives and works successfully abroad .
The charismatic Antonis Andreou on trombone play in three tracks.

The album was recorded at Lofish Studios in Manhattan, New York with the sound engineer Reed Taylor, except the parts of Antonis Andreou ( trombone) who recorded retrospectively (overdub) at Lizard Sound Studios ( Athens ) with Dimitris Karpouza .
