NEW! Brian Bromberg’s
Big Bombastic Band
Festival of Arts

Considered to be one of the world’s most ground-breaking and diverse bassists of our time, Brian Bromberg is pushing the barriers of the acoustic and electric bass to their limits. Commonly using as many as 10 or more basses on his recordings, using different tunings, string configurations, acoustic basses, electric basses, piccolo basses, etc., Bromberg has taken the bass and truly turned it into a vehicle for him to make music, write melodies, and be the lead melodic voice--as well as the rhythmic foundation--of the music. The bass has become an extension of the music inside him, and he has used all of these different basses to let that music sing.

In this presentation, Bromberg and his band perform songs from his most recent CD Thicker than Water, plus selections from earlier recordings including Earth, Wind, and Fire's "September" and Chicago's "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" His stellar rhythm section features Tom Zink (piano), Tony Moore (drums), and Ray Fuller (guitar).

This performance was originally recorded live on July 21, 2018, at Festival of Arts in
Laguna Beach, CA.
