Obsession is my tribute to the dedication to music and art. It is also a mantra for the responsibility which comes attached to it. It is something you have in your veins and something that is always with you, no matter what you are doing. And the process itself is about the creating because it needs to be done. It is not about what the result will be or could be. Of course, the more fun the doing is, the more fruitful the music might become. In this case, making this recording was one of the most joyful experiences I ever had – in composing and recording the music as well. This is also a result of the great chemistry and fun with Carlitos, Andy, Gene and Luisito. (Wolfgang Schalk)
