Ray Riendeau's "Atmospheres"
This album is true display of Ray's versatility and ingenious song writing. With a very eclectic group of musicians, Ray has done what very few solo bassists could do by not only showcasing his own extraordinary talents but, also giving each artist plenty of room to do their own thing. As a fan of Ray's for many years this album is beyond what I expected. Ray, keep em' coming!
