Album Notes
From the New Kids on the Block to Me'Shell N'degeocello, Dyson is a bona-fide force in the bass world (in my opinion, a criminally lesser known name to many, tho. Every bass player should be well aware of David Dyson). I had the pleasure of meeting Dave through a mutual friend (and killer bassist Steve Jenkins) at a NAMM show a few years back and am happy to report that he's also a VERY cool guy. Do a search on youtube or visit his myspace page and you'll find a plethora of wonderful videos showing us all what the pocket is really about. I was very excited to hear a mix of his upcoming CD "Unleashed!" and I wasn't disappointed in the least!

Right from the get-go, we are hit square in the jaw with David's deep pocket and Funky-as-it-gets grooves. Part of David's unique voice comes from his unusual right hand technique (watch the Vid's or ask him yourself via this website!). He has really captured a unique sound and perfect balance of the rhythmic booty factor and melodic statement.

While the production and instrumentation is a little Marcus-esque, the playing and over-all statement is all David. Beautiful melodies, nice compositions and some nasty pocket. I will be listening to this album repeatedly just to take a lesson in groove from the master. Some of the best bass lines I've heard in a long time! Dyson very well may be the funkiest dude around, but he's also very much got something to say here and I suggest you take a listen!

Review by Damian Erskine-Bass Musician Magazine

Guest musicians featured- Russell Gunn, Rick Braun, Marshall Keys, Vince Evans, Eric Valentine, Jay Jay Williams, Dwight Sills, Alvin White, PJ Morgan, Will Rast, Justin Young, Fred Yonnet, Lorenzo Johnson, Bryan Mills, & Deandre Schaifer

David has previously occupied the bass seat with artists "Chuck Brown", "Jonathan Butler", "Me'shell N'degeocello", "New Kids On The Block", Kirk Whallum to name a few and is currently with "Lalah Hathaway" & "Pieces Of A Dream", but does spot dates and studio work with various other artists as well. Fast gaining a reputation as a producer/songwriter(checkout "Pieces Of A Dream's" previous releases "No Assembly Required", their upcoming february release "Soul Intention" and "Tim Hagan's" grammy nominated "Animation/Imagination" as well as Hagans/Belden Band's "Animation Live"), David continues to grow as one of today's most prolific artists.

I first heard David Dyson with Marcus Johnson in a live set in Richmond, VA and I was blown away by his awesome talent on the bass. When I saw this cd "Unleashed" on cdbaby, I immediately ordered it. I had to wait a few wxtra days for its delivery, because it was during the Thanksgiving holiday. It was well worth the wait. The cd is great. I loadeded it in my cd player and set it on repeat and listened to it all the evening, then put on my headphones and went to bed still listening to some of the most mellow music I've heard in awhile. Thank you Mr. Dyson for some great music. L Thompson

Michele Bialkowski

Very Chill but no doubt it is Dyson with his distinctive, funky sound. Love It! Definitely recommend to others!

Darryl Lloyd

This is a nice collection of tracks that don't have that radio ready watered down sound. He also puts some of the "DC Flavor" on a few tracks. Keep It Up Brother!

The choice of the songs is very balanced, so that I'll never get tired of listen to this wonderful music ;-)
This CD is a "MUST HAVE"!
