: Hello everybody.I just want to say Amen to Alfonso;this is a great site,full of knowledgable,and very interesting fellow bassists.
: As pointed out by El Pajaro(who seems like an INCREDIBLY cool dude),Victor Wooten ans Steve Bailey made beautiful music together with Bass Extremes.
: I know that Dave Pomeroy also heads a bass choir in Nashville.And why not?The electric bass is a beautiful instrument,and its about time the world realized this.
: I would like to see more projects like that in the future.If two or more guitar players can get together,we should be able to do the same.When multiple bassists put their collective musical souls together,there will be some really sweet music to be heard out there!!
: Just thought i'd share my thoughts.
: Peace,and keep on groovin'(hey kenny,ready to go fishing?)
Regarding the mutiple-bass issue: I forgot to mention I happen to own a recording by Dave Pomeroy's All Bass Orchestra. It's just a couple of tunes, but it really is ear-opening. Their version of Duke Ellington's "Tings ain't what they used to be" is especially frightening!! Way cool.
And Alfonso's post reminded me of some other weird multi-bass projects. Mexican rap-hardcore desperadoes Molotov are a fine example. And there was a NYC alternative act called Cop Shoot Cop I never got to hear (anybody had?). And then there was Stanley Clarke's "Lords of the low frequencies" project with Armand Sabal-Lecco ...am I leaving something out?
Buena suerte and keep those basses way up front it the mix,
El Pájaro (cool dude?)
