Album Notes
The bass has a vital role in most musical arrangements. Often it is the least noticeable instrument, but once not there - it becomes very clear that something is missing or isn't right. One of my favorite metaphors compares the role of the bass to the role of the human heart. We mostly notice a person's face, eyes, or smile. As we can't see the heart we tend to take it for granted and hence do not consciously think of its importance. However, if it wasn't there constantly keeping the "groove", all the rest would be meaningless.

Over the years, the more I got to play the bass alone, the more I learned about the amazing range of sounds it is capable of producing. Inevitably, when practicing with no band around, I started to play the bass a bit differently by adding chords, melodies and harmonics. As a result, a collection of tunes and melodies was created all around the bass. This is when the idea of this recording was born. To spice it up with higher frequencies, I asked a bunch of my musician friends to play those melodies and add their own solos. This enriched the recording with a variety of instruments, sounds and personalities. The result is a collection of duets of the bass guitar with a lead instrument, where the bass is playing the entire harmony, outside of its traditional boundaries.
