Album Notes
Brendan Rothwell is an accomplished bassist, composer, and producer. Originally from the UK, Brendan has been based in Calgary, AB, Canada since 2005. This Is the Love, from Brendan’s debut recording Time On My Hands (Independent, 2016), secured him placement on several of the global “Best of 2017” contemporary jazz charts, alongside winning “The People’s Choice” in Calgary’s 2017 YYC Music Awards.

Following the success of his debut recording, Brendan takes a step up with the release of Sentiment (Independent. Global release 02/14/2019). With 11 tracks of bass-focused contemporary jazz, this album displays a unique and genuine identity. On this entirely solo recording, Brendan once again optimizes the tone, scale, feeling and musicality of the bass, bringing it to the foreground as a lead instrument to develop meaning and depth.

Brendan describes the 1986 album from Miles Davis,“Tutu”, featuring the great Marcus Miller, as the trigger and driving force for his decision to play the bass. The art of business and leadership is inextricably linked in all of Brendan’s projects, and he firmly believes in applying a business mindset to the industry of music.

Brendan Rothwell — Sentiment

Sentiment, the 2nd release from Canadian bassist Brendan Rothwell, shows Rothwell’s commitment to enhancing the art of coloring the bass as a lead instrument, thickening his distinctly fat sound with more expressive solid riffs and melodies. He’s also expanded the number of tracks from his 7-track Time On My Hands debut to the 11-track artistic endeavor offered here.

Citing the great Miles Davis’ 1986 Tutu album, featuring bassmaster Marcus Miller, as the trigger and driving force for his decision to play the bass, Rothwell represents advocates of the low frequency well and with a load of confidence.

From the head-boppin’ smooth jazz lead track “Keep On Keeping On” to the catchy finger-snappin’ “Your Move” to the lusciously romantic “Key to My Heart” and beyond, Rothwell presents full-bodied grooves guaranteed to capture your ear and soul.

The bassist wrote, performed, and produced all of the gems you hear on this project, proving that he not only has mastered the bass and its personality but that of other instruments, as well.

It’s obvious from the very first listen that this cat takes music very seriously yet has tons of fun with its magnetism, charm, and magic. Isn’t that what you want from all musicians, actually? It certainly makes for a more satisfying and complete listening experience. If it’s done right, the artist can transport you right there inside his or her head and heart, and that’s where you should certainly want to be when in that listening and experiencing mood.

Sentiment is a handsomely done album, complete with everything to easily make it a chart-climber. Let it work its magic on you. – Ronald Jackson
