Picked up this CD today, and all I can say is WOW. I knew Bromberg's work from his previous acoustic CD "It's About Time: The Acoustic Project", and spent many an hour with it transcribing three of the tunes, one of the piano solos, and one of the bass solos, which I played on fretless plank at the time. I wouldn't have thought it possible, but this one is even BETTER. The sound - both of the recording in general and of his bass in particular - is nothing short of spectacular. As is the playing: Imagine a fat, melodic sound with a huge robust presence that sings with a lyricism and fluidity that most mortal humans can only dream of, and you begin to get the idea. But you've got to hear it to believe it.... Stylistically, the disc will probably have some detractors, principally among them those who prefer an "old-school" gut-like sound. Also likely to be put off are those who dislike players with absolutely monstrous chops. But the ideas on this record are always supported by the chops, not muddied by them, and even when playing some of the most virtuostic stuff even imaginable, he never once loses the focus on the sound. Unbelievable. Anyway, enough raving. As if you can't tell, I'm absolutely blown away by this disc. He's joined on the recording by his brother David Bromberg (drums), and Randy Waldman (piano), both of whom sparkle as well. Just wanted to give a very honest thumbs up to the recording, and a heads up those those who might not have heard of it.
