BassDrumBone is a trio that has wedded the uniquness of it's instrumentation with
the singular personality of it's three members. A true collective, their music
combines three distinct compositional and improvisational approaches with an
exceptional musical rapport.
Mark Helias, Gerry Hemingway and Ray Anderson began performing as a trio in the
fall of 1977. Their first record, "Oahspe", was released in 1979 on the Auricle Record
label. Bob Rusch in his review of the record, wrote: "Exceptionally good music,
fearlessly played and tightly coordinated. Recommended."
In 1984 "Right Down your Alley" was released on Soul Note Records of Italy and in
the beginning of 1986 "You Be" was released on the Minor Music label of Germany
