Album Notes
Bay Area bassist Sam Bevan's debut CD, "The Fine Line" features his original compositions that strive to strike a balance between strong simple melodies, sophisticated jazz harmonies, polyrhytmic textures and the energetic drive of rock music. At the heart of the music is the raw energy of a guitar trio that vacillates between open floating textures and syncopated grooves. At the forefont is the atypical trombone lead that paints with wide greasy strokes while softly complimenting the music with haunting melodies.

Articulate, focused and highly musical, Bevan's sense of melody and rhythmic thrust showcase his talent. Tight arrangements and well conceived writing goes to show that Bevan is a multi-dimensional artist with much to offer. --Randy McElligot, Jazzreview

Bay Area jazzman Bevan is a bassist for all occasions, as his quintet session bounces easily from hard-bop to groove-oriented jazz rock. It's Bevan's combination of tone, swing and chops that makes this line so fine. --JD Constantine, Guitar World’s Bass Guitar

A wonderful find, fresh jazz
This CD is a wonderful find; Sam's music is a very refreshing take on jazz, and is extrememly listenable and engaging. The album features great compositions and superb musicianship from these excellent SF Bay Area players. The more I listen to this disc the more I enjoy it.
