[From the liner notes by Joachim E. Berendt, translated by Andrew Carnegie:]

Jean-Luc met guitarist Philip Catherine when the latter was still working for organist Lou Bennett, during the time when drummer Billy Brooks was playing with Bennett. Philip was born in 1942 not far from London. The son of an english mother and a belgian father, he grew up in Brussels where he also attended university, studying political science.

Ponty: "When I decided to add a guitarist to the group, I thought of him because he is one of those rare musicians with a jazz background who has also assimilated what pop has brought to the sound and the approach of the instrument."
