Drastic Measures Review

by Linda Kohanov

Manring takes drastic measures in his continuing crusade to push the bass out of the rhythm section and into the spotlight. Lyrical solos, bass overdubs, some virtuosic arpeggios, and breathless passage work illuminate ensemble-oriented originals as well as updated versions of Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" and Chick Corea's "500 Miles High."
