Hopper, Hugh - Volume 8: Bass On Top

SKU 23-HST 250
"...through our mutual interests we began a friendship which led to my idea to create a recording of these two amazing musicians, Slava Genelin (piano) & Aharon Kaminski (drums & percussion)....the session lasted 3 hours and was fantastic....right after the recording I started to cut, edit and add loops, sound snippets, Mellotron, and other instruments here and there..

Still, to me, something seemed to be missing, so I contacted my favorite bass player, Hugh Hopper, asking if he would like to add bass. Little did I know that he would say 'ok' so fast. So, I sent my CDR and the next thing I remember is receiving a returned CDR from Hugh with his bass on top of the recordings and Hugh phoning to say that this recording is fantastic....later on, Hugh added ... (Robert) Wyatt snippets and also Pierre-Oliver Govin's saxophone parts and this was the last CDR Hugh sent to me.....

When I heard of the ten CD tribute series for Hugh I immediately contacted Michael King in order to offer this recording for inclusion...so, almost 10 years after its creation and long journey, this CD of amazing music can rest in your stereo."-Meidad Zaharia
