Stu Hamm is a bass titan whose seminal work with Joe Satriani and Steve Vai cemented his status as a bass freak. He’s currently promoting a new solo CD, The Book Of Lies. Hamm’s live set is a gut rumbling mix of new and old hits featuring Alex Skolnick (Testament) on guitar and Joel Taylor (Allan Holdsworth, Al Di Meola) on drums. It’s been quite a while since Hamm has gigged with his own band around Bass Players’ digs in the San Francisco Bay Area, so we’re stoked to boogie with Stu at the sonically superior Yoshi’s jazz house and Japanese restaurant in Oakland’s Jack London Square this Monday, January 18.
“The inimitable Stu Hammstretches in several new writing and groove directions on his ambitious seventh solo effort,” says Bass Player Editor Chris Jisi. “Four ensemble tracks (boasting such Hamm East Bay buddies as guitarist Carl Verheyen and drummers Chester Thompson, John Mader, and Jason Harrison Smith) surround a seven-part ‘Petite Suite for Solo Bass.’” Read Jisi’s full review of The Book of LiesHERE.
