On this mesmerizing CD/DVD capturing the essence of a 30-country, 18-month, 175-date jaunt, Simon Green’s bass playing is the centerpiece of an ensemble that includes a live band, small orchestra, horn section, and multiple singers. Astonishingly, Green rocks his Music Man StingRay and key bass while cueing samples and hitting loops, never falling out of the groove.
