New Sounds

Big Bottoms (Encore)

Thursday, August 09, 2012

On this New Sounds, there's new music for bass, both electric and upright, bowed, plucked, or slapped, some bottom-heavy and grounding, some emotive and noodley - like the moody suite for electric bass by Jeffrey Roden, called "Seeds of Happiness." There's also music about salt. Yes, salt and salt marshes.
