Special Thanks to Marcos Portinari (Hamilton de Holanda’s manager), Anne Straus, Carol Gadd, and Tomoko Maruyama. A special thank you to Steve Gadd and Eddie Gomez, with whom I’ve been playing for more than ten years, for your participation. This will be the third Mikarimba album with Steve Gadd and Eddie Gomez. Also huge thanks to the beloved Eiko and Hiroki from Japan for their financial support to cover the vast expenses incurred from this recording project, and my dearest husband Richard Stoltzman, who made all this possible. Words cannot express my appreciation. Thank you all. — Mika Stoltzman
