Lynn Seaton: Solo Flights Lynn Seaton: Solo Flights (OmniTone 15002)

Surprising, adventurous, even wondrous bass flightsSolo Flights —without overdubs or edits —from Lynn Seaton, a musician known for his work with Woody Herman, Count Basie, Kenny Drew Jr and George Shearing

Filled with sinewy, soaring archi, orchestrally luxuriant excursions, and driving improvisations, the record ranges from the funky, rock-influenced "Ode to Jimi" to the Flamenco-flavored "Barcelona" to Coltrane to down 'n' dirty swing.  Seaton explores all corners, shades and facets of his instrument on this tour de force.
