The first solo cd by John Edwards, increasingly recognised as one of the most significant players of his generation. Recorded in splendid detail by John Wall in 2008, these nine tracks are a very fresh take on the possibilities of unamplified double bass playing, making it a major entry in the solo bass literature. This solo recording is an unusual and rare offering that comes from a musician who performs every day, every week, and appears on over 100 records. It's a selection of sounds, melodies, and gestures from this characteristic spectrum, combined with behaviours belonging to a virtuoso, and with those that can only be learned from persistent jigsawing or by illuminating and fusing all user manuals. From the notes by Marek Tuszynski. 'The record of the year'.
