Leon Lee Dorsey

Bassist/Composer/Arranger Leon Lee Dorsey is indeed a triple-threat, handling bass-playing, composing and arranging tasks with equal aplomb. Never have these gifts been more abundantly evident than on his CD release, "Song Of Songs". Joined by Bryan Carrott-vibes, Carlton Holmes-piano, and Vincent Ector-drums, Dorsey and his intuitive cohorts take the listener on an adventure through nine tracks that alternately shine, soothe, smolder and burn, all while swinging incessantly as well as maintaining a supreme sense of melody throughout. Leon Lee Dorsey's fluid and ubiquitous bass has energized Jazz masters Lionel Hampton, and Art Blakey with his Jazz Messengers, as well as Grammy winning Jazz vocalist Cassandra Wilson

Chip Boaz

Chip Boaz plays Latin Jazz with the bass on top. Six string bass highs and lows form the foundation for your musical experience. Melodic bass solos glide through a sea of Afro-Cuban rhythms and electronic sounds. Strong bass lines anchor contemporary sounds in the landscape of both Afro-Cuban and Jazz traditions. Infectious grooves inspire your feet to dance and your ears to listen a little closer. It's Latin Jazz with an emphasis on the low end, created to move you! Chip built the foundation for his musical explorations through early years of academic study. Chip’s teenage life was spent in high school bands and at-home garage bands, which inspired him to turn his passion for performance into a career

Philip Baumgarten

I'm a jazz double bass player. In most bands I'm in I play straight ahead jazz. Aerts & Baumgarten is a mainstream duo (guitar and bass), Play it hard is a hardbop quintet and with my own trio, the Philip Baumgarten Trio, I play my (jazz) compositions. I also play in a trio Pot, Baumgarten & Van Astenrode, that plays a crossover of folk and jazz. I've just recorded a nice cd with that band called 'Home'.

Since 2013 I accompany Brazilian singer Simone, and more recently, the world-wide known Brazilian singer/songwriter Ivan Lins. I have played live and/or recorded with many other well-known Brazilian artists, such as Ana Carolina, Maria Gadu, Milton Nascimento, Ney Matogrosso, Marcos Valle, Lobão, Paulinho Moska and Leoni - as well as artists from other countries, such as Lokua Kanza (Congo/France), Quexie Montana (Zimbabwe), Susanna Stivali (Italy) and Avi Wisnia (USA). On the jazz front, I lead my own Bicho Músico band (supporting my most recent album, "Bicho Músico") and the Notre Jam jazz quartet
