Don't think "violin", just think "bass" – as the group's made up of some great jazz bass players – all working together to use their instruments in a richly expressive way! The group is almost to jazz bass what the Piano Choir was a few years before – using the instrument for rhythm, melody, and a range of sounds that really makes the music sound wonderful – no surprise given that the group's led by bassist Fred Hopkins, and also features Rufus
Reid, Brian Smith, Bob Cunningham, Phil Bowler, and Greg Maker – plus just a bit of guest percussion from Thurman Barker. Tracks have that great soulful approach we loved from the early, optimistic days of the Black Saint label – the loft jazz mode taken to even greater freedoms – and titles include "Dr Norma", "Oppeizm", "Mwanga Rag", "And We Thought We Were So Different", and "Moody's Mood For Love".
