About the album

At the top level of New York City’s jazz, Latin, and studio scenes for four decades, bassist Lincoln Goines has put together this highly ambitious recording for his debut as a leader. With elegant textures inspired by Bill Lee’s New York Bass Violin Choir and Steve Swallow’s upper register explorations, Goines created a collage of styles and moods, built on a collection of favorite tunes and textured within the parameters of clearly voiced low end instruments—indeed, an “exquisite jungle of bass!” Pulling in ten world-class bass friends including Ksenia Vasileva, Victor Wooten and John Patitucci, and drummers such as Robby Ameen and Dennis Chambers, Goines has created a one-of-a-kind listening experience, celebrating the musical range of the instrument and the fellowship of those devoted to anchoring ensembles through time.
Der Bassist Lincoln Goines, der seit vier Jahrzehnten zur Spitze der New Yorker Jazz-, Latin- und Studioszene gehört, hat diese äußerst ehrgeizige Aufnahme für sein Debüt als Leader zusammengestellt. Mit eleganten Texturen, die von Bill Lees New York Bass Violin Choir und Steve Swallows Erkundungen des oberen Registers inspiriert sind, hat Goines eine Collage von Stilen und Stimmungen geschaffen, die auf einer Sammlung von Lieblingssongs aufbaut und innerhalb der Parameter von klar intonierten Low-End-Instrumenten strukturiert ist - ein "exquisiter Bass-Dschungel"! Mit zehn befreundeten Bassisten von Weltrang, darunter Ksenia Vasileva, Victor Wooten und John Patitucci, und Schlagzeugern wie Robby Ameen und Dennis Chambers hat Goines ein einzigartiges Hörerlebnis geschaffen, das die musikalische Bandbreite des Instruments und die Gemeinschaft derer feiert, die sich der Verankerung von Ensembles durch die Zeit verschrieben haben.

Lincoln Goines (bass)

Bassist, composer, author, and educator Lincoln Goines has distinguished himself as one of the premier bassists of his generation. As a sideman, his resume reads like a who's who of the pop, jazz and Latin world. A native of Oakland, California, Goines studied piano and trumpet in grade school. In his teens at the apex of the psychedelic/soul culture explosion of the 1960's he chose music as his path and began playing electric and acoustic bass, studying formally with Vancouver BC Symphony bassist/cellist Sydney Keats, virtuoso soloist Gary Karr, and later with jazz bassists Steve Swallow and Eddie Gomez.  Now a mainstay of the New York City jazz, Latin, and studio scene for over four decades and noted for versatility and...

Goines is a published composer in his own right and his compositions can be heard on recordings by Dave Valentin, Ryo Kawasaki, and most recently on the album Night and Day, a collaboration with drummer Kim Plainfield released in 2002. In addition, he is a Professor of Bass at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and a faculty member at the Bass Collective in New York City. Goines is a senior student of Tai Chi Chuan Grandmaster William C.C. Chen and is one of his certified master instructors. He is also a contributing author for the book Bass Lessons with the Greats and co-author of the book and video Funkifying the Clave: Afro-Cuban Grooves for Bass and Drums.

Within the classical tradition, he was able to develop new musical concepts which left an everlasting impression on all the composers that came after him. Together with Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven he is part of the First Viennese School. At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position. From 1763 he traveled with his family through all of Europe for three years and from 1769 he traveled to Italy and France with his father Leopold after which he took residence in Paris. On July 3rd, 1778, his mother passed away and after a short stay in Munich with the Weber family, his father urged him to return to Salzburg, where he was once again hired by the Bishop. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death.

Sonny Rollins

Walter Theodore 'Sonny' Rollins (born September 7, 1930) is an American jazz tenor saxophonist, widely recognized as one of the most important and influential jazz musicians. A number of his compositions, including 'St. Thomas', 'Oleo', 'Doxy', 'Pent-Up House', and 'Airegin', have become jazz standards.  Rollins was born in New York City to parents from the United States Virgin Islands. The youngest of three siblings, he grew up in central Harlem and on Sugar Hill, Harlem, receiving his first alto saxophone at the age of seven or eight. He attended Edward W.

He has said that a concert by Frank Sinatra at his high school, accompanied by a plea for racial harmony, changed his life. Rollins started as a pianist, changed to alto saxophone, and finally switched to tenor in 1946. During his high school years, he played in a band with other future jazz legends Jackie McLean, Kenny Drew and Art Taylor.
