SCCD 31870 Jay Anderson “Deepscape”

Bassist/Composer/Educator Jay Anderson (b. in California) is so much in demand that it is difficult to come up with any distinguished musicians who have not had Jay in their band for gigs and/or recordings.

Here on his 92nd appearance on SteepleChase the label has the pleasure of showcasing Jay Anderson as the frontline soloist/leader. Anderson with dazzling ability to create musical landscape presents 11 tracks with diversity unified by the deep resonance of a double bass superior.

Mr. Anderson has a melodic sense that effectively shapes his solos and adds subtle touches to his accompaniments.” (John S. Wilson – New York Times)

“…a most imaginative and sympathetic bassist.” (The Observer – UK)
