Delightfully diverse bass guitar Manuel Muzzu – 3-Ree

Delightfully diverse bass guitar Manuel Muzzu – 3-REE:  I’ve listened to a lot of jazz & funk over my many years of reviewing, and I can honestly say that this is the most delightfully diverse bass guitar work I’ve heard in many years… to get an up-close & personal view of Manuel’s unique playing style, check out his performance on the high-energy opener, “Give A Fu(n)k“…

…if you were watching carefully, you noticed that Manuel’s right-hand plays in a very special way… it’s a technique he developed because of a handicap incurred at an early age.  You’ll find many more superb performances when you SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel, as I did (right away).

If you’re in the mood for dancin’ ’round the room, put your headphones on and listen to the lively sounds Manuel creates for you on the 5:13 “Soca Suca“… I can tell you right now, DJ’s are going to be spinning this track ALL the time, folks!

For something a bit more laid-back, try the closer, “Just A Lullaby“… the interaction between the bass and the keyboard on this one is just superb, too… you’ll have no trouble entering the land of sweet dreams as you check this one out.

Smoothhazz” reaches right down into the depths of your soul, and tugs (ever-so-gently) at your heart… the strings on this performance are absolutely wonderful, and the song is one of the most full-bodied pieces I’ve listened to (yet) in 2020!

After my second listen through the entire 40-minute set, it was easy to choose my personal favorite of the eight superb songs Manuel offers up for our sonic wonderment… “A Place To Be” is the longest tune on the album, and gives Manuel (and the listener) plenty of room for discovering tasty nuggets… rich tones and beautiful pacing made it my favorite, for sure.

I give Manuel a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.  Get more information at Manuel’s website.                         Rotcod Zzaj
