Chester Thompson Wake-Up Call

Wake-Up Call (the title has nothing to do with the Phil Collins song of the same name) has its origins in the COVID time. Chester then sent the drum tracks to Robert and Michiko Hill (bass, keyboards), who in turn finished composing the songs based on Chester's drumming. Most of the songs on the album were composed accordingly by the two. Chester has been working with the two for a long time. Other instruments were then added as needed, that includes contributions by Akil Thompson, Chester's son.
