Grace Is in My Bass
'Stan's new CD shows his many talents on the electric bass. He uses many techniques including slap, artificial and natural harmonics and good old fashioned fingerstyle to bring his creative arrangements to life. His religious music is heartfelt and genuine and the secular music is always in the groove!' -- Jeff Mangone, Electric and Upright Bassist-Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Pittsburgh Ballet, Wheeling Symphony, Duquesne Univ., Univ. Of Pittsburgh, Slippery Rock Univ. I am so excited to share with you news about my new CD release, 'The Grace Is In My Bass'. This is truly a 'Bass' CD. No Piano. No Drums. No Guitar. Just Bass. All parts were played on my Carvin 5 string Claro Walnut bass. In following a path of 'just bass' for the release, the road has led me to a compilation of unique arrangements of songs that are familiar to my friends who are pursuing their faith and God with their whole heart. I also have done songs on the record that are 'standards' that lent themselves to be arranged in a 'bassic' way that suits my way of interpretation.
