The mood for 'Prayer for Peace' is a very strong part of my musical personality.

The theme came to me during an improvisation. Afterwards I remembered it because the feeling was so beutiful for me that I wanted to recreate it, and give that feeling of peace and beauty to everybody.

Ideally all the improvised parts are felt and played moment by moment. I selceted the musicians because of their sympathy towards, and understanding the music. For me John is the finest Europen drummer, and Jeff has been an excellent bassisit for years. I used barry on the title track because this piece is as special to him as to me.
