Con la sua voce dal timbro caldo e profondo Mario Biondi ha conquistato le platee di tutto il mondo, e con questo nuovo album si affida alla sapiente produzione di Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick del famoso gruppo jazz-funk Incognito. Atmosfere raffinatissime e musicisti d'eccezione, il disco alterna brani di influenza jazz (le iniziali "Shine on" e "Come to me"), ad episodi piu' funky e dance, a romantiche ballate melodiche. Da urlo la sezione ospiti: troviamo infatti a collaborare in alcuni brani Leon Ware, Omar, e vere e proprie leggende come James Taylor, Chaka Khan e Al Jarreau, per un album che e' gia' nei piani piu' alti delle classifiche.
