“After 2 years of work it’s been such an honor to work with some of the greatest artists I know and some of the most inspiring people in music, today. I wanted to record an album of duets that could showcase my love of many styles, the challenge of rearranging some classic songs, and share the fun of total improvisation with players who do it on a level that we all marvel at. I also wanted the chance to sing with some of my favorite voices too”, said Tommy.
“For me, recording is the same as playing live in front of an audience. I sincerely hope you, the listener, will enjoy this album of real honest work brought to life by artists who reach for the stars and always bring something special to the music. Accomplice One was recorded and mixed by Brad Benge and mastered by Marc De Sisto. As the producer, I kept it real and kept it simple!”, added Emmanuel.
