Much of the music on “My Little One” was inspired by my love for the classic recordings of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Billy Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. The songs are nostalgic in nature and may recall the feeling of classic standards, yet still have a modern aesthetic in approach. In creating this atmosphere, the band is made up of a wonderful group of musicians. The record features a Portuguese vocalist, Luisa Sobral; drummer, Dan Rieser; bassist, Gary Wang; and Pete Rende plays on a multitude of keyboard instruments.
