Bassist Michael Feinberg‘s latest recording, The Elvin Jones Project, (Sunnyside Records) continues his ascent in the jazz world. At 25 years old the Atlanta native and Brooklyn resident has already put out 3 records as a leader and performed alongside legends including Billy Hart, John Scofield and Ambrose Akinmusire. As the LA Times gamely puts it, ”Like Andre the Giant in The Princess Bride, bass players may not be the main attraction, but ultimately you can’t help but notice them, because they are huge and ugly. Albums by bass players give the unsung heroes an opportunity to express their musical opinions. The Elvin Jones Project is Feinberg’s third album as a leader, a lot for a bassist, but like Andre’s poetry readings, he knows how to convey a meaningful narrative. This 25-year-old is fast approaching giant status in NYC.” His trio features Howard Wiley on tenor sax and Brubeck Institute graduate Malachi Whitson on drums.
