the album came together naturally, it was a growing process. it was like planting a tree, each branch represented an artist, a sound, a groove. the entire process happened within a few years. it started with a few songs and then this past year, i was in a creative state and the music happened back to back. as i travelled and toured, i met artists on the road and would record with them a few weeks later. the experience with the artists on the album was magical;,,, they are all so talented and very unique and have their own special quality. the delivered sampling of featured artists on louie vega starring is one for the record books and a must for any music aficionado as louie explains, this body of work is a masterpiece that will be party of my legacy. i see it up there on the same high shelf with albums like nuyorican soul, elements of life, and masters at work.
