|Jeff Berlin: Low Standards|
Jeff Berlin (bass); Richard Drexler (acoustic bass, piano); Mike Clark (drums)
A legend of the Electric Bass, JEFF BERLIN is considered by many to be THE finest Electric Bass virtuoso in the world. He is universally hailed as a true innovator by fellow musicians (like Jaco Pastorius, Marcus Miller, Billy Sheehan and countless others) and by listeners alike.
On his RANDOM ACT RECORDS debut, Jeff offers a set of sizzling standards from the jazz repertoire, including tunes by Wayne Shorter, Bill Evans, Benny Golson and Pat Metheny. Joined by the multi-talented RICHARD DREXLER (on Acoustic Bass and Piano) and renowned Drummer MIKE CLARK, the trio illustrates a complete knowledge of their instruments and of the songbook. The combination of Acoustic and Electric Basses presents a unique texture; Berlin's distinctive Electric voice ''sings'' the melodies. With Drexler switching to and from the Piano on each track, the trio has the sonic impact of four players.
Low Standards represents the HIGHEST standards of musicality, soulful energy and distinctive virtuosity. All music lovers will be enthralled by these standards - the project is a Bass wizard's ultimate nod to the Jazz masters.
