Besides being among the greatest musicians ever known- Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Hiromi, John McLaughlin, Branford Marsalis, Zakir Hussain, Mike Stern, Gary Husband, Simon Philips, Wayne Krantz and Steve Lukather all have something else in common. At one time or another, these legendary artists have counted on the supportive, melodic and propulsive bass playing of the amazing Tony Grey. Artists of such stature, virtuosity and high standards do not trust just anybody to hold down the foundations of their music. They seek out the best for live performances and recordings. Time and time again that is turning out to be Tony Grey.
Elevation marks the return of Bassist, Composer Tony Grey to the Abstract Logix Label after his sophomore release- Chasing Shadows. Brilliantly crafted, this very musical outing features a new and never released composition from John McLaughlin that was written for his friend Chick Corea. Chick's Chums is a great funky tune featuring John himself on the guitar. Elevation features 10 tracks featuring fretless Guitar Whiz David Fiuczynski, Mike Stern, Nir Felder, Tomoyasu Hotei. The wonderful percussionist Mino Cinelu can also be heard on the cut featuring McLaughlin.
