When you think of great bassists who comes to mind? For me players like Victor Wooten, Les Claypool and Flea have always been on the list. After listening to the album Morning Session by Pippi Dimonte & The Overcrowded Duo I’d have to say Pippi Dimonte has technical ability that could rival some of these guys. He slaps, picks and pretty much just manhandles his bass throughout the seven songs on the album. There were a couple of times I backed up the track to make sure what I heard was an actual bass. Even though the bass is the main attraction on the album it wouldn’t work without Nicola Benetti (drums) and Alessandro De Lorenzi (guitar). There are a number of impressive guitar solos as well as drum parts that will not go unnoticed if you take a listen.
