While Tucson-born, Los Angeles-based Brian Bromberg has been equally conversant and downright virtuosic on both electric and upright basses, he sticks strictly to the latter on his latest offering, LaFaro. A tribute to the legendary jazz bassist, Scott LaFaro whose revolutionary contributions to the classic Bill Evans Trio still reverberate to this day, Bromberg’s 28th as a leader shows him in an unadulterated swinging trio setting in the company of pianist Tom Zink and drummer Charles Ruggiero. An in-demand L.A. session musician and valued sideman to everyone from Stan Getz to Dave Grusin, Billy Cobham, Michael Bublé, Diana Krall and countless others, Bromberg’s solo career began in 1986, albums like 2005’s rock-fueled Metal, 2006’s Wood II, and 2007’s GRAMMY®-nominated Downright Upright, further showcase the bassist’s remarkable versatility and sheer command of his instruments. On LaFaro, Bromberg pays heartfelt homage to the virtuosic bassist. The superpower trio of Evans, LaFaro, and drummer Paul Motian were committed to the idea of three equal voices, working together for a singular musical idea and often without any musician explicitly keeping time. Inspired, this ultimately led Bromberg to lead his trio on a gorgeous album.
