Breathtaking Bass Techniques!
Music is a spiritual form of communication that cannot be described by words. And yet, before we listen to a new work, we are curious about what to expect. Dean Peer has been noted for decades as an electric bass virtuoso and authority on bass harmonics, and his new album, Airborne, does not disappoint in its intricate and otherworldly harmonic melodies. This time, however, Peer introduces us to drummer Bret Mann, and gives us a peek into his musical roots - funk, jazz-rock, and Americana - showing us what a "rhythm section" can really do. Observe Peer's breathtaking arsenal of bass techniques and use of audiophile-grade effects plus the sheer realism of Mann's drum and cymbals.
Airborne is a conversation between a virtuoso of the electric bass guitar and his longtime friend, the master percussionist - two people who know and understand each other, who can finish each other's sentences and who have the deep respect for one another that causes them to listen fully before responding.
Only true friends can follow the complexity of such a conversation and end with a light bantering joke, or a peaceful meditation - and we feel as though Dean Peer has invited us into his circle of friends by sharing this collection with us. Airborne takes us back to the days when we gathered to sit in front of the stereo, concentrating on the music. Not dancing. Not talking. Just captivated by the story of the music.
