Bill Champlin: “The first Peter Freistedt CD I co-wrote a song with him and went to sing it, overdubbing is what I expected, and walked in and there was Jimmy Haslip, Russ Ferrante and a hndful of other greats ready to cut the song live, wow, ok. We finished that and they had another tune to cut and Peter said, “Bill, you wanna' write this one, too?” I said, “Cool”. While they were rehearsing it I banged of some lyrics in the booth and that one was done. It was a kick. The next album, the tracks were cut and I co-wrote a few things, one I sang lead and one Joseph did. We did the bkgs, and that was it. Peter seems to be able to put together pretty cool people for his CD's and the boy can play that thing. Bill.”

Joseph Williams: “I remember the LA Project 2 sessions as a great time (as usual). We worked at Bill's (also as usual) and had many laughs. If it's the session I remember, Bill recorded my entire lead vocal with the instrumental track going to “Tape” ... So we had to redo the whole thing. It is a common mistake, and it's happened to me more than once. We laughed it off and did it again. Not a big deal (but funny)! I love working with Bill and always will. The same goes for Peter. He is so talented and I always feel blessed to work on his albums.”
