Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2009-06-22 
one of the great bass players, his 'voices' acoustic, electric fretless and piccolo basses with unusual techniques hitting & bowing with great use of the wah wah pedal.
***1: 3:25 acoustic, electric fretless and piccolo basses with drums, like the
title, a prayer
**2: 5:08 fretless bass, drums & piano, kind of straight ahead but very beautiful
***3: 5:10 cool sound tapping the acoustic bass strings with the bow and using the wah wah pedal, with drum kit
***4: 5:06 free jazz, fast, minimal female spoken word ( those of poet Langston Hughes) , trumpet, guitars, piano & drums
****5: 5:46 solo acoustic bass
***6: 4:45 bowed acoustic bass with Yungchen Lhamo (the voice of Tibet) vocal/wail
***7: 4:58 acoustic bass, great piano & acoustic guitar
****8: 5:34 Jazz?rock fusion, fast fast plucking on the fretless with drums
****9: 4:29 raga influenced WORLD FUSION piccolo bass solo with GREAT use of the wah wah pedal
****10: 7:26 raga influenced WORLD FUSION piccolo bass solo with GREAT use of the wah wah pedal + drums
****11: 3:50 cool sounds from plucking & bowing the acoustic bass with wah wah pedal
****12: 3:24 the STAR SPANGLED BANNER on fretless bass and drums.
