    (Los Angeles) - Aside from being some of the greatest musicians ever known, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Hiromi, John McLaughlin, Branford Marsalis, Zakir Hussain, Mike Stern and Steve Lukather all have something else in common. At one time or another, these legendary artists have counted on the supportive, melodic and propulsive bass playing of the amazing Tony Grey. Artists of such stature and virtuosity do not trust just anybody to hold down the foundations of their music. They seek out the best for live performances and recordings. Time and time again they have turned toward the expertise and artistry of Tony Grey.

    Now, Tony Grey is set to release his fourth solo album, Elevation, on October 15 2013 through Abstract Logix Records. Elevation is a beautiful, multi-track showcase of collaboration with a who’s who of guitar and musical greats; featuring the amazing Mike Stern, fretless guitar legend David Fiuczynski, Whitesnake's Reb Beach, Japanese star Hotei Tomoyasu, and finally, Tony’s illustrious uncle and guitar legend John McLaughlin, who contributes a new and never-before-released composition that he penned for Chick Corea.
    
    Tony Grey will, in any event, develop into one of the great and innovative musicians of our time"
    - John McLaughlin

    "Tony Grey is one of the most melodic bass players in the world"
    - Hiromi

    Tony wrote all the music for Elevation, also arranging his own version of “Some Day My Prince Will Come” featuring Fabrizio Sotti, along with the funky “Chick’s Chums” from Mahavishnu John McLaughlin. Nir Felder, Romain Collin, and Mino Cinelu all lend their musical mastery to Tony’s tracks.

    Tony stands out as not only an immensely talented bassist, but one of most formidable writers of the next generation, whose music transcends genres, appealing not only to the attentive, longtime fan, but also creating a musical bridge for those new listeners about to enter the rhythmically-addictive world of Tony Grey.

    For those that are interested, I wrote up a quick review of Tony's album here: http://www.trya.us/2013/10/14/tony-grey-elevation-album-review/

    I'm just a big fan and took the time to jot down some thoughts...nothing super fancy. I also submitted it to Abstract Logix as a Review, no idea how/when things like that get approved though.

    Great job Tony; keep putting out great music!
