In honor of the evening, he has celebrities with him, i.a. one of Europe's foremost big bands, the young, fresh Latvian Radio Big Band with whom Mats previously worked on the CD Big Band Minimalism with Randy Brecker and Dick Oatts as guests.

What could be more fitting for Bossa Nova than to feature Brazil's leading drummer Kiko Freitas who in 2019 was voted "World Music Drummer No. 1" by Modern Drummer magazine. The icing on the cake is a new, young rising star in the jazz/fusion sky: Jesus Molina, who i.a. played with greats like Randy Brecker and John Pattitucci.
