Carolina (Steve Bailey)
We are very proud to have Steve Bailey’s newest release ‘Carolina’ in our store.
Choosing a duo setting and tapping into his deep pool of creativity, Steve Bailey takes bass to a new place on Carolina, while redefining the meaning of “duet”. This masterpiece features Bailey on 6-String Fretless bass and 17 other artists including Ron Carter, Mike Stern, and Anthony Jackson; Ian Anderson, Dennis Chambers, Howard Levy, Bakithi Kumalo, Becca Stevens, Victor Wooten, the legendary Willie Nelson, as well as Willie’s son Lukas Nelson, and more. (Truly Amazing!)
Throughout the record, Bailey’s bass is both the glue that binds song, style and artist, and the visionary voice that summons your ear. Though equally known for his uncanny abilities as a soloist, Steve is an accompanist at heart, and that was his mission herein. These skillful and playfully crafted duets range from dynamic new compositions to original renditions of covers. Bailey has sprinkled surprises and magical gems throughout.
Can you imagine a duet with Steve Bailey and Willie Nelson? Do your soul a favor and listen right away.
Be aware: this record is addictive. You’ll want to listen multiple times to catch it all. That’s for sure.
