The bass is an instrument of equal status with any instrument know in the world today. it is compositional, melodic, and rhythmic in its very nature. Over the years very few have tried to expose the bass instrument in its entire concept. many have settled for the back up role and have not really covered new ground musically with this instrument. With this in mind , once again Jamaaladeen has set out to revolutionize the bass role. Basso Nouveau is his bass quartet of four premier Philadelphia bassists and a drummer/percussionist in which the bassists act as a total quartet utilizing every aspect of the bass.
Recorded live at Moers Festival, Moers, 29th May 1993. [buy it here]
