Fluid, complex, and modern yet soulful, composer/bass man Feliciati’s latest disc, a concept album based on the life of koi fish, exists in a space somewhere between prog-rock and ambient. If the presence of former Japan drummer Steve Jansen and King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto makes you think there might be electronics, odd-time grooves, tasteful dissonance, ethereal soundscapes, and sumptuously recorded fretless lines, you’d be right on the money. But when was the last time you heard a cool unison line between trombones and fuzzed-out fretless like the one on “Fish Bowl”?
CD Review: Colin Edwin and Lorenzo Feliciati "Twinscapes"
If you assume that an album co-led by two bass players necessarily entails 16th-note duels and burning shred-fests, think again.
