Zon, Taking Bass Further
Michael Manring      

Band: Solo Artist

A student of legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, Michael Manring has honed his skills on over a hundred recordings as a soloist and session musician and thousands of concerts throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia. His many solo and ensemble CDs have earned him an international reputation as ·a master of the fretless bass without rival.· (Guitar Club Magazine, Italy). He has also garnered two gold records, Grammy and Bammie nominations, a Berklee School of Music Distinguished Alumni Award, and numerous Bass Player Magazine Reader's Poll awards including 1994 Bassist of the Year.

·Forget his astounding technique and musicality; forget his absolute command of his instruments; forget how seamlessly the musical ideas and the performance of them were wedded together. . . The enlightenment came most from feeling (seeing, hearing) the joy Michael felt to be playing. . . his brand of transcendental chops and musical understanding...was all in the service of the final outcome, the joy of making music.
··Tom Darter, Keyboard Magazine
