Chosen amongst the ten best bass players in
the world in 2011 on the world Bass event, his discography gets richer in 2017
with the a record based on guitar and bass around the music of Jean Sebastien
Bach. This album is recorded as duets with John Patitucci (Chick Corea), Laurence
Cottle, Federico Malaman, Michael Manring, Kai Eckardt (John Mac Laughlin),
Edgar Meraz, and has been arranged by Jason Miles arranger the Tutu album
from Miles Davis and by Michel Eyan. The mix was realized at
studios Icp in Brussels by Phil Delire. It was a pleasure to play Bach's
music with Bruno. Bach is one of my most favorite composers and I enjoyed Bruno's
arrangement for two basses. I also enjoyed hearing some of the other duets that
Bruno did with the other fine bassist on the project. John Patitucci
Interpret Bach is like play something impossible
to play, perfect! Thanks Bruno for having involved in this muscially project
class. Federico Malaman. One of the greatest joys of being
a musician is to be able to take up the masterpieces of the great J.S. Bach.
The music is of course, sublimely, unfalteringly beautiful and simultaneously
intellectually deep, rich and fulfilling. There's not much I can or need to
add to the praise that's already been rightly given to these cornerstones of
Western Civilization, but I'd like to point out a special challenge and opportunity
Bach's music offers us. Michael Manring.
I was very surprised to be invited to participate on this very unique album
by Bruno Chaza. I love a challenge and I love musicians that think outside the
box. I love the concept of this album and Bruno playing is just virtuoso! Jason
Miles. I met Bruno Chaza more than 10 years ago by accident on Myspace.
I was very impressed with his playing. Many years later I received an invitation
to participate in the new classical album. I was very happy to work with Bruno
for the first time. Stepping into the mind of the great JS Bach was challenging
and yet very fulfilling. I'd
been a fan of Bruno's playing way before he invited me to join this stellar
group of musicians, and I am delighted to be part of this Bach celebration.
I hope the listener gets as much enjoyment out of the recording as we did performing
it ! Laurence Cottle.
I' m very honored to be a part of this very important project. Share
music with Bruno has been a wonderful experience throughout my career as a musician.
Bruno as well as being a musician I admire, he is also a great person that puts
the heart in everything he does. As a teacher he is inspiring but he is also
a great human being. Edgar Meraz. Art is no stranger to boundaries,
perpetually picking at established norms, seeking out the new. It's been a pleasure
to explore the genius of Bach, a classical Baroque idiom, though the lens of
an instrument as contemporay as the electric bass. My journey, initially fired
by passion, evolved into one driven more by increasing curiosity, by possibility
and eventually, enchantment. Bruno Chaza
