WCS 017
The Lay of the Land
Mike Pope
Mike’s mastery of the 5 and 6-string electric bass has led to live and/or recording stints with a wide array of artists, including Mike Stern, Chuck Loeb, Anton Fig, Jason Miles and Blood Sweat & Tears. His precision and poise on the upright has brought calls from Joe Locke, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Bruce Barth and David Berkman. And his stylistic and technical command of both instruments has led to “doubling” gigs and cross-idiom hits with the likes of Randy Brecker, the Gil Evans Orchestra and Steve Smith. His talent shines brightly in all situations, especially on this, his WCS debut.
