CD – “Doug Ross”
$10.00 (Includes shipping worldwide and sales tax for CA residents)
Amid the recent deluge of hyper –technique oriented bass solo albums, veteran Los Angeles bassist Doug Ross chooses instead to showcase his compositional and stylistic range on his self-titled debut disc as a bandleader. Nearly two dozen of L.A.’s top session players lend their talents to a broad range of vocal and instrumental tracks, evoking comparisons to Tower of Power funk, Oscar Peterson Trio jazz, even anthemic rock on the instrumental closing number (featuring the amazing Brett Garsed on guitar). Doug’s bass playing shines as well, both in a groove context and also in several melodic solo bass interludes. Now on sale for only $10 including free shipping!
