Welcome To The Hills was recorded in Copenhagen during 2019, in what would turn out to be the trio’s last performance together.

Many of the albums were created live during gigs across 2018 and 2019.

“It feels more right than ever to release this live recording, as there have been no shows this year… So we want to give you, the listener, the chance to participate and enter the Yussef Dayes trio live experience,” Dayes explains.
