Ties Mellema (for whom Lago wrote ‘Strong Ties’ in 2008) gave Lago a call in the summer of 2010 to tell him about a new project he was working on. A tribute to the music of ‘Prince’, one of Ties’ musical heroes. He asked if Lago was interested in writing a piece for this project and that resulted in Sign O New Times, very freely based on the Prince classic. Is it about that walk? is another piece for this program, this one referring to Prince’s ‘It’s about that walk’ and featuring a quite extreme baritone sax solo, quasi improvised. And of course quoting one of the true heroes: Claude Debussy.
