Circle Without End - CD

by Frank Russell

This bass guitarist’s follow up to his critically acclaimed debut CD, “Covering All Basses,” is titled “Circle Without End” and he does come full circle as he writes and records with some of the musicians who worked with his biggest influence as a musician, the legendary Miles Davis. They include, Robert Irving III, Darryl Jones, Richard Patterson, Dede Sampaio and Miles emissary, the great Wallace Roney on trumpet. Brilliant guitarist, Henry Johnson is also on board, co-producing and playing along with an all-star cast of modern Chi- town stars. Frank also pays homage to the world renowned South African singing group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, whom he worked with for six years. Described by noted bass guitar author, Jon Liebman, Frank demonstrates a wide variety of bass playing, from funky slapping, R & B grooving, lyrical fretless and tasteful five-string, stating also this dutiful sideman is solidifying his standing as an established solo artist in his own right.

Bass at it's best
Frank Russell brings the bass! As a huge fan of the great Stanley Clarke ,Jimmy Blanton and Marcus Miller, winning me over isn't an easy thing to do. But Frank Russell has done just that! While all songs from CD, are wonderful,standouts are Tuesday Heartbreak,Soul Carnival and the title track Circle Without End. It's cold outside now, and there's nothing I'd rather cozy up to than a steaming cup of cocoa and my Frank Russell CD, I suggest you do the same!
