Amazing!!! I love this album. He's so musical. He's one of the most musical people to ever walk this planet. He got his start as a bassist and Zawinul really pushed him into the limelight, but now we see everything else he can do. To top it off, he's a really cool guy. Super laid back and chill. Easy to talk to.

ecclectic, fun, wonderful!

Really enjoyed this CD of Richard Bono... wasn't sure which was he was going to go on the next song! Love the combination of African, Latin, India, even country blends on songs throughout. The fact that's he's also a gifted musician vocally along with being a great bassist makes me enjoy this totally different exploration of the blues greatly.


A really great album by Bona. He's a very powerful bass player.
