Jeff Hughell, Alberto Rigoni: Bassists Alliance Project Drops Debut Album ‘Crush’




Bassists Alliance Project Drops Debut Album ‘Crush’

LOS ANGELES, CA (Dec. 15, 2017) — Bassists Alliance Project announces the
release of Crush this Friday, December 15. The album is a genre-busting debut
record that showcases the versatility of the bass guitar and the professionals who
have honed their craft for years. From prog metal to funk and experimental, the
10 original instrumentals on Crush give listeners with varied musical tastes plenty
to digest, from rock-steady riffs and intriguing grooves to mind-bending solos and
intense showcases of technique.

Founded by fellow Italian bassist and progressive rock composer Alberto Rigoni
(solo, Vivaldi Metal Project, Ardityon, The Italians, etc.), the Bassist Alliance
Project is co-leaded and co-produced by seven-string bassist Jeff Hughell, best
known as the bassist of Six Feet Under, which recently released their critically
acclaimed 12th studio album. A veteran player and solo artist with more than 20
years’ experience, Hughell embarked on a brand-new project that incorporates
many influences.

Hughell and Rigoni composed most of songs on Crush, and combine talent on
three tracks, including the title track that features bassist Adam Nitti. The album
also includes collaborations with 10 other fiercely talented bassists: Michael
Manring, Tony Grey, Scott Reeder, Brandino, Steve Di Gorgio, Mark Michell, Ryan
Martini, Colin Edwin, Dmitry Lisenko and Leonid Maksimov. The masterful Phil
Cage drums on all tracks except the punchy “Tapping Wires,” where Maxim
Rubtsov sits in. The album was mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren at Castle
Ultimate Studios in Oakland, CA.

The musicians in the Bassists Alliance Project represent different countries,
different generations and different influences, but on Crush, they come together
for one impressive musical journey. To listen and download the album, visit http://bassistsallianceproject.bandcamp.com
