David Finck, BASSically Jazz

Most musicians, and certainly most jazz musicians may very likely see the bass as more or less a part of the rhythm section. David Finck is the exception. In a career spanning forty years and pairing him with some of music’s most prominent names, Dizzy Gillespie, Andre Previn and Rosemary Clooney to name a few, Finck has chosen to make the bass a featured instrument. Make no mistake, this is a traditional jazz work. However, it also contains hints of samba and Latin jazz. When Track 1, “Old Devil Moon” cued up, I got the feeling I should be sitting in in a smoky nightclub with an MC saying “tonight at the Moonlight Lounge…” What follows is bass centric traditional jazz that moves from one style to another and does so unobtrusively.

Overall: 8

Sonics: 8

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
