These are the players who helped make QITARA a reality: Katisse delivered an amazing sax solo on "The Doer", Otmaro Ruiz and Michael Hunter both shine on "Upness" along with Jason Lobell. Morten and Dicki made "Faces in Reflection" a magic recording, Scott Kinsey added some pizazz to "Red and Orange" and Christian Hammer created a beautiful sounding brass section in "Agni Rahasya". Edoardo Talenti, a young drummer from Italy, played a huge part in creating the sound of QITARA. We worked closely together on the basic tracks. Last not least, the vocalists added the cherry on top: Morten, Robin and Ryan Downe, formerly of Moth Vellum. I am deeply grateful to all the musicians on this record.
