This is one of the better things Mo-Fi has remastered on gold in quite a while. Bassist Rob Wasserman spent three years putting together a collection of folk-pop-jazz arrangements of trios played by himself and an all-star cast of friends. The result was a minor classic.

Each listener will have his or her own favorites, of course; mine are "Dustin' Off the Bass" with Willie Dixon and Al Duncan; "Gypsy One and Two," with Kronos Quartet cellist Joan Jeanreaud and cellist Matt Haimovitz; and "Bass Trilogy, 1-3," with Wasserman playing all the parts.
The album was recorded from 1991 to 1993 and released in 1994. It was recorded on analogue tape, which I can hear some audiophiles saying now is the reason it sounds so good. It is incredibly smooth, quiet, and well behaved from beginning to end, even though there is some slight difference in the earlier and later tapings. The sense of transparency and air is stronger in the later selections, but it's really of little consequence. This was, indeed, a labor of love on Wasserman's part and well worth everyone's efforts. I recommend Mobile Fidelity's remastering for anyone who can afford it.--JP
