All It Takes is a fertile collaboration between the chart topping Rick Braun, and versatile keyboardist, composer, producer Philippe Saisse, it' s also a step into a wide-open musical terrain beyond Braun's trademark R&B/pop comfort zone. Most of the songs on All It Takes find Braun artfully combining flugelhorn with muted trumpet (using the Harmon mute). Add Euro, neo-classical, cinematic elements and a touch of disco flash and that's All It Takes for a sensational new disc. From producing Richard Elliot's newest (Rock Steady,) to setting himself new levels of creativity for All It Takes, to the now-legendary Chet Baker inspired shows, Rick performs as the mood strikes - this is an artist who doesn't stand still.
