"I''m a bass singer. No bass singers have solo albums," Lance Bass - ''NSYNC
Not true, Lance.......Grammy nominated arranger, songwriter, producer and bass singer Richard Bob Greene - founding member of the a cappella super group the Bobs - casts off his chains of bass-dom in this solo record and takes the elevator to the stars.....or at least to the first floor.
"Low? Bottom? Me?" is jazz in orientation, with snippets of Dixieland, a languid a cappella bossa nova, wistful balladry, an amazing dance remix of the Bobs'' classic recording of "Helter Skelter", and a generous dollop of neo-hipster spoken word.
Greene''s seemingly bottomless voice sounds lived in, but he''s one hundred percent believable and more - sometimes low-down, and at other times with wit as dry as a martini.
The CD features a stellar cast of session players and singers including Mary Fettig on saxes, Andrew Chaikin on vocal percussion, Joe Finetti on vocals and trombone, Steve Erquiaga on guitar and Gunnar Madsen on vocals.
".....conjures up a refined Tom Waits meets Bob Dorough meets Elvis Costello with a dash of Steely Dan thrown in - and yet still incredibly original and successful arrangements......." James Rosenberger - Maxxmedia+Events
