Brian Bromberg

Downright Upright

On Downright Upright, acclaimed bassist BRIAN BROMBERG leads an All-Star line-up to create an irresistible musical tour de force.

Generating retro grooves, sexy rhythms, and catchy hooks on every track – this mix of original compositions and fresh interpretations of classic tunes will be favorites for years to come.

Brian Bromberg’s career began as a teenager backing saxophonist Stan Getz. In the nearly forty years since and over 20 projects in his catalog, Bromberg has established himself as a first-call master of the upright as well as electric basses, releasing more than 20 albums globally as a leader and providing low-end for the likes of Chris Botti, Lee Ritenour and Michael Bublé.

“Thicker Than Water is a record I’ve been wanting to make for a very long time,” says the dynamic bass virtuoso Brian Bromberg. “I love the upright bass. It’s where my heart and soul is. My connection with that instrument is unlike anything in my life. I also love the electric bass and really wanted to explore its endless possibilities on this project.” That love of the bass is evident across the wide-range of irresistible grooves found on Thicker Than Water, available July 13 on Artistry Music.
