“Well, though long overdue, finally we decided to head back into the studio and record something just as a teaser of things to come, although this is just a cover and we’ll be working on some originals…so this is just a way of saying, “don’t sleep”; 2011 was simply the appetizer ;) I think we went in on this one as I’ve never went this far into playing Jazz like this before on a recording (I don’t even think I’ve released a straight-ahead jazz track ever); and Cleveland is really showing the vocal dexterity and chops that a privileged few of us have been privy to, and he said this was his way to pay tribute to his vocal idols, Rachelle Ferrell and Anita Baker (yup…he’s serious and you’ll understand when you listen)!” – Ahmed Sirour
