Tony Smith is a bassist who possesses blistering chops and also knows how to pace himself through tasty grooves in this accom- plished ensemble work. Smith’s nimble plucking can be awesome (“Caliente,” “Rock Child”). He also anchors the ensemble when called for without hogging the spotlight: The likes of “Over Bridge,” “Colton,” and other tracks are unabashedly joyous fusion – speedy, precise, and full of melodic undercurrents.
Tony Smith shows us what a virtuoso bass guitarist can do He plays a mean funk-slap groove, a three-finger pizzicato, and an electrifying original technique he dubs “the klaw.”
