Michael Bisio: Undulations Michael Bisio: Undulations (OmniTone 15001)

In the inspired lineage of David Izenzon and Henry Grimes, the vibrantly passionate, soulful Seattle-based bassist/composer is unreservedly caught up in the flow of music.  Undulations ebbs and flows with suspense and humor.  Bridging the gap between improvisation and composition, the effervescent quintet creates some of the most adventurous and listenable music around.
