Achieving international recognition through his 40-year career as a bassist and as an award-winning producer, composer, and recording engineer, Dan Dean is a truly multi-faceted artist constantly seeking new challenges and outlets for expressing the music he hears. For his debut vocal recording, Dean came about it in a very roundabout way. In preparation for a recording of solo bass with string orchestra, Dean arranged works by JS Bach, Vivaldi, Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakoff and Albinoni. With the budget and organizational constraints of recording large ensembles, Dean decided to try adapting the arrangements to his voice. What began as a "what if" experiment turned into a musically ambitious, technically challenging effort. Often angelic, or haunting, or exuberant, "Songs Without Words" is a culmination of his musical experiences over a lifetime, captured by a single microphone. •"...exceptionally articulate and resourceful...he proves to be both a supportive role model as well as a soloist..." - AUDIOPHILE AUDITION
