An album of improvised, solo, upright bass. This isn't your father's jazz. Tauber makes use of every possibility the bass affords in creating sound textures, often simultaneously rubbing, plucking, and bowing to create harmonies alone. Along the way, from program music to program music, he manages to show off some incredible versatility in performance. The music can become a bit sparse for the average listener from time to time (it is, after all, solo bass), but it generally picks back up soon enough, and the freedoms taken in improvisation will keep the listener interested. Free jazz aficionados, embrace this record.
