During creating this programme Renārs Lācis involved musicians, composers and authors of arrangement with whom he has found common language in the professional field over the years and who are not only regarded as colleagues, but also close friends. Among them there are saxophonists Gints Pabērzs, Kārlis Vanags, Dāvis Jurka and Māris Jēkabsons, pianists Anna Vibe-Gorkuša and Ritvars Garoza, trombonist Krists Daubaris and vocalist Denisa Dārzniece.  

“There will be compositions that have passed the time test, that we, musicians, want to play again and again, but the audience still wants to listen to it. There will be original compositions of the soloists, but a special place this time is dedicated for improvisation,» says the conductor of Ventspils Big Band.
