The band which Nils and Joe specially put together for this album mainly consists of musicians from New Orleans. With a famous exception: the pop and soul star Ray Parker Jr., especially known for the title song for the Ivan Reitman film 'Ghostbusters' (1984). Here he plays guitar and duets with Nils Landgren on the Otis Redding hit 'Dock Of The Bay'. The rhythm section includes bassist Chris Severin, who is known amongst others from many Dianne Reeves albums, Raymond Weber (drums), and Lenny Castro (percussion). Weber was in the 90s a member of Harry Connick Jr.'s Big Band and is to be seen on screen in the film 'Ray' as the drummer in the band of Ray Charles. The busy percussionist Lenny Castro has worked together with greats such as Al Jarreau, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, Ricky Lee Jones, Diana Ross and Quincy Jones, and is also known for work with Joe Sample and The Crusaders.
Charmaine Neville, a member of the famous Neville Brothers clan, appears as 'special guest', interpreting with Nils Landgren Allen Toussaint's classic 'With You In Mind', which lyrics are written by her uncle Aaron Neville. Also appearing on Creole Love Call is one of New Orleans' most famous musicians, the sousaphone player Kirk Joseph, arguably the most important and most creative innovator of his instrument. Together with trombonist 'Big Sam' Sammie Williams, leader of the New Orleans funk band 'Big Sam's Funky Nation', he is a member of the legendary New Orleans' Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
