Legacy and Alchemy has been a four-year project in the making, Robert Hebert put together a team that would be responsible for the career resurrection of drummer-bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington (following 20 years of no U.S. recording to becoming a multiple Grammy®-winner) along with Larry Williams, a Grammy-nominated producer, composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist for the likes of Sheila E., George Benson, Michael Jackson, Mika and Al Jarreau, Legacy & Alchemy features a wide range of Brazilian and American performers. Brazilian music is close to the heart of Hebert, who has done business in Brazil for over a decade. He found in Jackson a fluent singer of English, Portuguese, Spanish and a similarly worldly individual to realize his vision. Hebert says of Jackson, "I am reminded every day that, while musical talent and artistry are a given for success in the music industry, 'ascending the ladder' requires character, integrity, spirit, soul, heart, perspective, perseverance and giving. Alexandra has all these qualities in spades."
Larry Williams is a Grammy-nominated producer, composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist who formed the jazz fusion group Seawind in the mid-1970s. His notable session work includes the distinctive saxophone solo on Sheila E.'s "The Glamorous Life", and sax, keyboard and arrangements for George Benson, Michael Jackson (Thriller, Off the Wall and Bad), Quincy Jones and Mika. He regularly tours and records with Al Jarreau. His film and television work include saxophone in the film Dreamgirls (uncredited on the corresponding soundtrack album), and sax and keyboards on several Grammy Award telecasts in the 2000s.
