Bass Instinct: Butterfly

Bass Instinct: Butterfly
Item# basic-instinct-butterfly

Product Description

"Butterfly" - something we associate with beauty, tenderness and possibly difficult birth. There are thousands of different butterfly's, colorful and in all sizes. A quite fitting title for Bass Instinct's third release. Over the past seven years we tried to acquire a catalogue of contemporary literature for six basses, a quite unusual set-up. For this CD we commissioned a wide variety of fellow bassists to write pieces for us, amongst them very established ones like Mark Dresser, Mark Helias or Joëlle Léandre, and some lesser known (but hopefully soon to be known) bassists like Thomas Stempkowski or Jiri Slavik. Even non-bassists like Barbara Bruckmüller contributed another composition for us.
