Discogs lists this 1994 effort by Rob Wasserman as “Soul-Jazz, Acoustic, Jazz-Rock, Contemporary Jazz, Free Improvization.” Hard to disagree with any of those.

I might add Pop and World music to the melange, as well, for some tracks.

I hadn’t known Wasserman died in 2016, but he had quite a career and CV.

A who’s-who of guest artists performs with the bass virtuoso on these tracks, check it out:

1. Brian Wilson, Carnie Wilson
2. Marc Ribot, Elvis Costello
3. Branford Marsalis, Bruce Hornsby
4. Wasserman (Bass Trilogy Part 1)
5. Jerry Garcia, Edie Brickell
6. Al Duncan, Willie Dixon
7. Bob Weir, Neil Young
8. Wasserman (Bass Trilogy Part 2)
9. Les Claypool, Chris Whitely
10. Wasserman (Bass Trilogy Part 3)
11. Joan Jeanrenaud, Matt Haimovitz
12. Joan Jeanrenaud, Matt Haimovitz
13. Jerry Garcia, Edie Brickell

And how does it sound? Pretty damn great. It’s varied enough to be interesting, veering from jazzy little numbers to fuzzed out rock and weirdo freak outs. None of it should work as a whole, yet it still all sounds like it ought to be together in this mix. Bass Trilogy Part 2 is even his solo rip through (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. Yup.

Now I wanna find Solo and Duets!

Cool find!
