Album Review

Devoting almost an entire CD to unaccompanied bass solos would seem to be a big mistake, but Glen Moore has the imagination and the skill to enable him to pull it off. "Oxeye" is a rhythmic masterpiece with the flavor of a folk song, while his sense of humor comes across in the strident miniature "If You Can't Beat 'Em, Beat 'Em!

Although this release is likely to be most appreciated by bassists, it is worth exploring by all.
