ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Accomplished bassist Bobby Vega began his professional career at age 16 with Sly and the Family Stone. With well over 100 albums to his credit, he continues to explore new ground. Co-founding KVHW in the late 90�s, his musical craft continues to develop into a complex and heady blend of rhythm & blues, rock funk and improvisational jazz. He is instrumental in laying down thick grooves as well as being a driving creative force in all of his musical endeavors.

Born in San Francisco, Vega has significantly contributed to the city�s rich musical heritage. Originally acclaimed for his funky style, Vega�s reputation as a creative force has taken him into many other musical arenas. A connoisseur of the instrument, he has been called "the Jaco Pastorius of the 90�s".

Vega performs worldwide and has recorded with such greats as Billy Preston, Paul Butterfield, Baba Olatunji, Joan Baez, Bob Weir, Kitaro and many, many others. While continuing to work on his own projects, Bobby has toured with artists including Tower of Power, Etta James, Mickey Hart, Jefferson Starship, Santana & Jerry Garcia.

An accomplished composer, he collaborated on various movie soundtracks, including the documentary film, "Vietnam, a Television History", the Francis Ford Coppola Film, "One from the Heart", and even composed music for the Sega video game, "Sonic, The Hedgehog III". In 1997, Vega released a solo album titled, "Down the Road", with special guest performances by The Turtle Island String Quartet, David Giribaldi, and Airto Moreira. Laying down a foundation with incredible feeling and groove, world class bassist Bobby Vega is as solid as a rock.
