With all the interest in EUB's lately and lots of interest in the Eminence Bass in particular, I thought some of you might like a chance to hear one. Please, I don't want this post to serve as a plug for the CD, nor do I want to use this forum for any sort of career or ego boost for myself. If anything, I do hope that this functions as a bit of a plug for Gary Bartig, the maker of the Eminence and for (all hail) Bob Golliher, who sold me my Eminence and whom I and many others on this board hold in high regard. Now, enough of the disclaimer, here's what it is. Go to www.cdbaby.com and preform a search for BOBBY WEST. There you will find some info for his new CD called "Hip Profhecy" I played the Eminence bass on all of the 13 tracks on this album, except for track#9, on which I played the "slab". On the remaining 12 other tunes all of the bass is my Eminence Removable Neck EUB! We recorded this project at a very nice Pro Tools equipped studio in Jakarta, Indonesia while I was on a long term gig in Jakarta as a member of the same trio that is featured on this recording. Since the Eminence is my traveling bass this was the only Double Bass Type instrument was available me for this recording date. I was very, very pleased with how well this bass worked out, both live, nightly on my gig there, and in the recording studio! So here's an opportunity for any of you that might be interested in hearing the Eminence played in a jazz trio context and in the hands of a (more or less) skilled player....well the bass sounds good, nevertheless! Please, you don't have to buy the CD, that's not why I'm posting this info, but please do check out the Eminence Bass! You can hear about two minutes of each track on the CD thru the CDBaby.com site. Thanks, hope this post isn't taken as inappropiate, it's all about the bass, you dig?
