One More Angel demonstrates bassist Patitucci's skills both as a composer and artist, in allowing others to contribute in both ways. But Patitucci also demonstrates a rare modesty which blends well with his musical role as a strong but subtle support, rather than an overbearing titular lead. The recording features Impulse artist Michael Brecker on tenor sax and Patitucci's wife Sachi on cello, in addition to pianist Alan Pasqua, tenor sax Chris Potter (who fills the role well in Brecker's absence) and drummer Paul Motian. Angel mixes noire-y slink and mournful silk to express sadness and strength through repetitive themes and flowing orchestrations.

The reason I love Jazz is because it allows me to understand many other music genres and have fun including them into the
mixture, I also really like to improvise, which is the essential characteristic of jazz that lets you feel the freedom inside the piece.
