David Hines, 5-string fretless, 4 & 6 string basses; Steve Hunt, keyboards and piano; Steve Kirby, electric & classical guitars; Steve Michaud, drums; Allan Holdsworth, guitar, guest soloist
Virginia Beach-based fusion bassist David Hines has brought together a fine group of musicians in the making of his first solo CD, Nebula, namely Steve Hunt on keys, Steve Kirby on guitar, and Steve Michaud on drums. In addition, legendary guitarist Allan Holdsworth, a former bandmate of Steve Hunt, appears as a guest soloist on 2 of the tracks.
The CD contains 8 original Hines compositions, inspired by the music of Weather Report, Return to Forever and Miles Davisí Bitches Brew. This is a fine debut for Hines, a solid fusion effort with great writing and musicianship throughout, and should be enjoyed by fans of the aforementioned bands.
