    A MOST EXCELLENT CD ...

    Just received a copy of Anton Fig's new solo album, "Figments." Highly recommended to all musicians ... required listening for bassists to remind themselves what it means to offer musical support within the context of a song.

    This is no "Drum Chops Showoff" CD ... as he does every weekday night on the Letterman show, Anton plays "for the song." Of course, the amazing flair and fills are all there, but never outside the context of the song. Hell, there ain't a tasteless moment on the record regardless of musician.

    Appearing in the bass chair on this CD we have: Will Lee (naturally), Donald "Duck" Dunn, Bakithi Kumalo, Neil Jason, Chris Minh Doki, Tony Garnier, Richie Scarlett ... and Anton himself!

    Ace Frehley and Sebastian Bach appear on one track, and it's pretty heavy stuff. Anton can rock!

    The production is top shelf, the songwriting is great, catchy melodies ... there's something on this disc for everybody. It melds many various styles of music without sounding disjointed.

    Anton worked 3+ years on this CD, and the heart and soul he poured into it is evident from the moment you put it on. You can feel the love that went into it. Not a tasteless moment to be found.

    Highly recommended. It's a shoo-in at the Grammy's for "Most Sincere and Passionate Recording of the Year."

    The CD is available right from his website (mine showed up in two or three days) ...

    If you're like me ... and you're semi-nauseated by music that's sponsored by Pepsi, Budweiser, or some other major corporation, then this CD is for you.

    It's music from the heart.

    Sounds good.

    You can't pay for that type of publicity.

    You should be his agent.:D
