ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Liner Notes by Todd Coolman:

Like many languages, the jazz language is one steeped in a rich tradition that has steadily evolved, thus creating new turns of phrase, figures of speech, and colloquialisms relevant to the times. To paraphrase the legendary bassist Ray Brown, “To develop your style, you take a little bit from here, and a little bit from there from that which came before you, and you add just a bit of your own and push it all forward.” That is how you create your style.

Bassist Pete Coco has assembled a musical collection that pays tribute to many individuals who have influenced him in any number of ways. At the same time, he has taken the crucial step of adding of his own personality and musical voice, pushing it all forward. He has forged a style that is all his own; fresh, original, yet grounded in the tradition. One cannot help but hear the sheer joy and enthusiasm that Pete has for playing the bass and for the music at hand. Although he has ample space to show his wares, he is always thinking of his bandmates and YOU, the listener. His musical generosity and supportiveness are consistent with the manner in which Pete lives his life. He is a giver, a contributor, and a selfless individual who understands that the whole is greater than the sum of any part. As you listen to his music, that will become readily evident to aficionado and novice alike.

Pete’s tribute comes in the form of performing compositions by bassists he has admired and been inspired by over the years including, Percy Heath, Red Mitchell, Ray Brown, Paul Chambers, Charlie Haden, Ron Carter, Milt Hinton, and Oscar Pettiford. That’s quite an elite musical neighborhood to live in, to be sure. He has also included two Spirituals, a reference to his earliest days of playing the bass in church, and a poignant composition by his close friend and fellow bassist, Bob Bowen, who tragically left this world far too early.

There is a saying that, “It’s all in the company you keep” and Pete’s associates on this recording, pianist Sullivan Fortner and drummer Matt Wilson, corroborate that sentiment. Always listening, always supporting, and always pushing the music to reach a higher level are just some of the hallmarks of the music they help create.

After a few hearings of Pete Coco’s music, one will easily understand that his musicianship contains all of the elements of the great bassists he has chosen to pay tribute to for this collection. Pete’s sound, swinging time feel, great intonation, excellent bowing technique, the clarity of his ideas, and the overall command of his instrument and the music are all evidence of a, “Top shelf” performer. In Pete Coco’s hands and heart, the jazz language is both well preserved and moving forward. Sit back and enjoy the gifts he so ably shares!

Reviews:
"PETE COCO TRIO/Lined With a Groove: Anyone who owns any Concord or Arbors albums or who has heard jazz in New York is probably already familiar with this bass ace. Using his debut recording as a platform to pay tribute to the bass greats that influenced him along the way, he tips the cap to a pantheon of greats here with a mixture of respect and passion. Showing just how much these cats have added to jazz, this is a magnificent statement about the state of the art. A winner throughout."
-Midwestern Record

"It's really a wonderful CD... especially the sound of your bass."
-Maestro Ron Carter
