Unadorned Pt 1

from by Steve Lawson



I’ve had it in my mind for a long time to do a whole recording project without looping and with minimal processing. This is heading in that direction. There’s a fragility to the sound of the electric bass in this context that resonates with me like no other instrument. So it’s often the purest expression of that ‘melancholic optimism’ that permeates so much of my music. It’s the music at the heart of it all laid bare.

Steve Lawson UK

The UK's most celebrated solo bassist, here with lots of looped/layered solo albums, & collaborations, most notably with genius singer Lobelia. Dig in deep, there's a lot to discover.
