Hans Sturm – Altered States of Bass – WSM-119

CD Baby
“Of course, when one listens to this disc, one hears the totality of Hans Sturm, not the individual parts. The composer, bass player and technologist all come together into a powerful and inseparable whole. A voice. A vision. This is a disc that will reward the listener on many levels. It is significant that many of the tracks are dedicated to important bass players as well as Madeleine Crouch from the International Society of Bassists. With this act of homage, Altered States of Bass resonates at a deep and profound level.”
