State of the Bass

Robert Black, the Bang on a Can All-Star and contemporary bass master performs on the traditional doublebass, the electric bass guitar, the electronic upright bass and the MIDI base. Black strums, picks, slaps, hugs and plucks music out of these instruments with both a wild emotional abandon, as well as an intellectual control. The recording includes the compositions Two in the Hand by Robert Zvonar, Composed Improvisation for Steinberger Bass Guitar and Snare Drum by John Cage, Radio Sonata by James Sellars, Piece #1 for Doublebass and Tape by Orlando Jacinto Garcia, Big and Cheap by Amy Knoles, Mirrors by Paul Dresher and Trio by Richard Zvonar and Robert Black.
