I always believed in the power of Rock Music, The music of The Police travels beyond times and styles. Sometimes when I try to figure out a new step in my musical projects, I ask to myself whether it would be worth writing new stuff, considering how much consistency and strenght is available in music like The POlice's. That's why I asked to these great musicians to support me and give me ideas in arranging music like "Message in a Bottle" in odd tempo. I love what came out so much, Thank you guys.
