The collaboration started in 2006 and in 2016 Stern & Hoff toured again, this time with a new ensemble, where Audun Kleive (drums) and Per Mathisen (bass) completed the band. The collaboration between the four resulted in a record release two years later. Mike Stern has been named Down Beat as one of the best jazz guitarists of all time and has a career from i.a. Blood, Sweat & Tears, Billy Cobham and not least Miles Davis. Stern has been nominated for the US Grammy Awards 6 times and in 2012 was awarded a so-called "Certified Legend Award" by Guitar Player.
