Tom Knific: Home Bass Duos and Trios

Bassist Tom Knific and some buddies, including Gene Bertoncini, Billy Hart and Andy LaVerne, serve up tasty, cozy and melodious duos and trios; they can also get raucous, as they do on the title tune. The choice of material and the instrumental combinations on this recording give Knific ample opportunity to display his considerable arco and pizzicato dexterity, tone and range of styles. Saxophonist Trent Kynaston and bassist Peter Dominguez add to the musical camaraderie.
