Kermit Driscoll - Reveille (video)

Don't call him just-a-bassist!

Just like Viktor Krauss and Marc Johnson before him, Kermit Driscoll is a versatile veteran jazz bassist making a debut album after many years of service as a session musician. And like the aforementioned musicians, his debut sounds an awful lot like an album made by his sometime-boss Bill Frisell. Is this such a bad thing? Hell no. Besides, it certainly helps that Driscoll's originals are powerful enough to stand erect with any guitarist at the helm. Kris Davis and Vinnie Colaiuta fill out the ensemble on piano and drums respectively. Davis in particular goes above and beyond her call of duty with rolls and trills, and preparing the piano. And Colaiuta.. .well, Sting doesn't hire just any old chump.

Reveille won't drop until April, but it will be worth the wait.
