David Finck | Bassic Instinct
Bassist and composer David Finck returns with Bassic Instinct, a colorful, Latin-flavored production, featuring a nice selection of original and re-arranged covers. In addition to Finck’s contributions, the production includes compositions by Lalo Schifrin, Jerome Kern and Johnny Mandel, Jerry Niewood, and Irving Cesar and Vincent Youmans, among others. The recording features a talented lineup of musicians, including Quinn Johnson, Ted Firth, Phillipe Saisse and Meg Ruby on piano, Kevin Winnard, Teo Lima, and Cliff Almond on drums, Bob Mann and Nelson Faria on guitar, Andy Snitzer on saxophone, Mike Davis on trombone, Barry Danielian and Ryan Dudley on trumpet, and Laura Conwesser on flute. There are also some really nice vocal contributions by Téka Peneteriche, Trist Curless, Kelly Mittleman, and Melissa Errico. A very entertaining and truly outstanding effort.
