Bassist Messina, influenced by the music of Lennie Tristano and Sal Mosca, puts his 30+ years of skills into a mostly original set dedicated to Oscar Pettiford, Sonny Dallas, Fats Navarro, N-H-O-P, Dave Holland, Connie Crothers, Vinnie Burke, Sal Mosca, Jimmy Halperin, Red Mitchell and others. 15 tunes including "Embraceable You" and "A Ghost of a Chance". The cover of the 12-page booklet sports a lovely abstract by Lauren Messina. The extensive notes by Messina not only talks about each track and the challenges of recording solo over one hour of music in real time. Accessible and deeply felt this is one of the solo bass recordings to enjoy over and over again.
