Album Notes
According to Bass Player Magazine, "Steve Bailey is to the 6 string fretless bass what Christopher Columbus was to America".

You may have heard Steve with Dizzy Gillespie... or the Rippingtons.... or Larry Carlton.....or Kitaro... or Willie Nelson... or Jethro Tull...or.......... well, the list goes on.

Through the 80's and 90's Steve could be heard on a variety of recordings, from movie soundtracks to TV commercials. He toured and recorded with a variety of Artists, playing Jazz, Rock, Country, New Age,... whatever!
All of these divergent elements can be heard in his unique solo style.

Teaming up with Victor Wooten (probably the most influential bassist of the decade) in 1993, they formed Bass Extremes, a cutting edge Bass-Duo that has released critically acclaimed cd's and dvd's for the last 14 years.

So Low.... Solo, will offer the listener a new perspective on bass playing. Completely without "stacked tracks" or overdubs, Steve teams with legendary hand drummer Robert Thomas Jr. (of Weather Report fame) and creates a duo that can sound like an orchestra. Steve's innovative artificial harmonic techniques, chordal voicings, and multi-timbre polyphonic pyrotechnics combine to make a very listenable, soothing, musical experience.

Victor Wooten says it best on the cd cover...
"So Low...........Solo, the new CD from Steve Bailey, is finally here. The sound he produces from his six string fretless bass is so beautiful and unique that I have been asking him (pressuring him to be exact) to record this music for years. Your ear will tell you that there is no way he could have produced all of this music with one bass and no overdubs (I know that he did,) but the smile of your soul will tell you that it doesn't matter."

Just a great CD. Bailey is one of the greatest bass players in the world. This is him at his best.

This disc is absolutely brilliant! It plays smooth and goes down easy. Don't let this one pass you by.

The disc is spectacular!! Great work by a master of the fretless bass.

A master finally comes out of hiding
Steve Bailey is well known as a bass power lifter, however his technical prowess on six string fretless bass guitar is a mere footnote to the compositional might he displays on this album. While Bailey’s bass wizardry is more than evident in the tunes, rarely did I find myself wondering about the man behind the curtain. I just listened to gorgeous music crafted by the stroke of a master.

Bailey hasn’t released an album as a soloist in quite some time, but "Calm Before the Storm" and "Mom's Melody" were worth the wait alone and remind us all why he’s a pillar of the art form.
