Niggenkemper, Pascal: Look With Thine Ears (Clean Feed)

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"And here it is, finally, the much expected solo recording of double bassist Pascal Niggenkemper titled 'look with thine ears'. Everything we heard from him leading groups such as vision7, Upcoming Hurricane, PNTrio, 'le 7ème continent', collaborating with baloni and PascAli as well as being a member of Gerald Cleaver's Black Host, Thomas Heberer's Clarino, Cooper Moore Trio and the Nate Wooley / David Rempis Quartet, made us dream of the opportunity to hear him SOLO.

Why is he so special? Well, because Niggenkemper is part of a rare number of bass players who prepare their instruments, being maybe the one who goes further doing it, because he has one of the most beautiful and personal sounds around and also because he has an endless vocabulary for the lower-sounding variant of the violin family, creating entire worlds and soundscapes. Living in New York, and being part of the rich scene of the Big Apple, this German-French virtuoso is undoubtedly one of the most important masters of the bass language in activity. Don't you know him yet? Well, this is the best opportunity to discover him."-Clean Feed
