Each track of the album captures the mood of a different city. "Vienna" sounds as if Mozart could have written it – if he were a jazz musician living now.

"Seoul" combines traditional Korean music with the 21st century urban metropolis. "Helsinki", says Rantala of his home town, "is a relaxed, groovy place." Puccini's aria "Nessun Dorma" references Milan as an important centre of Italian opera, whereas Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World" is a summarization of this musical tour of cities: " Rantala and Wakenius always play Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke" as the encore at their concerts, and audiences love it.

That track was a must for the album, as was "Love The Stuff/Ain´t No Mountain High Enough" from Stuff, the 70's and 80's jazz-funk band with Richard Tee, Cornell Dupree and Steve Gadd, a group which both men revere.

That legendary band also inspired the choice of album title: "Good Stuff".
