Shob – Solide (La Route productions, 2019)
Bassist Shob brings together the best of seductive funk, spirited jazz-rock fusion and masterfully crafted progressive rock.
As you would expect, the superb bass plays a leading role throughout the album although there are generous contributions by all the other equally skilled musicians.
Solide is mostly instrumental and features Shob on bass, guitar and percussion. His colleagues include Morgan Berthet on drums; Johary Rakotondramasy, Jean Loup Siaut, and Christophe Maroye on guitars; Tony Lavaud on keyboards; Célia Marissal, Scratch, and Hugo Senbei; PJ Ley on trumpet; FM Moreau on saxophone; Jumbe on percussion; and Ludovic Lesage on congas.
