Some "GonzoBass Hype" From the Label-


"You could well imagine that over 20 years of playing as a solo act, sideman, instructor, studio musician and briefly as a street performer would give a musician quite a unique perspective on his instrument."

"Citing many diverse influential artists, Gonzo commands multiple techniques such as chords, harmonics, two-hand tapping, slapping, and sometimes even as much as punching his bass to enable him to capture his inner emotions and share them with his audience, both rhythmically as well as melodically."

"As you know, this definitely transcends the traditional role of his chosen instrument and as you might expect, it also makes Gonzo's talent something really to be SEEN...
as well as heard!"
