The album features other musical giants such as Dennis Chambers, Simon Phillips, Victor Wooten, Clayton Cameron, and more! Check out the cool article in Bass Player Magazine!
“Bass Ball” features a Who’s Who of drummers with Dennis Chambers, John Wackerman, Simon Phillips, Steve Ferrone, Johan Franzon, Ike Wiley, Clayton Cameron, and Bryan Cabrera. On Percussion are Chris Moraga and Monette Moreno. Playing keyboards on a few of the tunes is Nick Smith and Larry Dunn (Earth, Wind & Fire). Dunn composed a song with his wife Luisa called “Lulu”—a track filled with layered keyboards and complex, melodic arrangements. Luisa Dunn adds her lush background vocals to the tune. “Lulu” also features flutist Kaylene Peoples (who also plays flute on two additional tracks).
