 オープニングから、今までウィルが手がけた音楽の中では初めて耳にする、そして今にも四分の一音が聞こえてきそうな雰囲気のサウンド。ヨルダン出身のピアニストZadeのデビュー・アルバムは、このアルバムを制作する数年前にであったことがきっかけだったそうです。そして前年のコンピレーション・アルバム『SONGS WITHOUT WORDS II』の中で、唯一ウィルが手がけたアーティストとして若きピアニストが紹介されました。
  まだImasinary Road Studiosの調整が整っていないのか、いつものピアノの音がしません。そしてそれを裏付けるかの用に、使用楽器(スタインウェイ)のことがクレジットされていません。
 この若きピアノストは驚くべき経歴の持ち主で、ロンドンではエリザベス女王、ワシントンではネルソン・マンデラのために演奏を行なっています。
