On The #1 is my 5th CD. I always felt that there was a magic to the #5, and I know that we have captured the magic in this recording. On The #1 has been my signature phrase for whenever I sign off, it means to me being right on point, focused. That's how I feel about this recording. Once again my band has committed to the groove that has taken us to the next level. Igor Atalita, Bryan Carrot, Vince Cherico, Craig Rivers, Ruben Rodriguez as well as myself, have become the recipe for our own sound. I had the good fortune of adding Tim Ries as a special guest on tenor and soprano saxophone.
