First Listen: Mike Downes – Root Structure

First Listen is sponsored by Bay Bloor RadioThe Right Sound For the Right Price..

We finally have received our copies of bassist Mike Downes new recording on Addo Records, Root Structure!

Featured on Root Stucture is drummer Larnell Lewis, guitarist Ted Quinlan, and Robi Botos at the piano.

Mike has produced a beautiful new record that shows the great playing of these heavyweights but also Mike’s tremendous compositions. Root Structure is a play on words referencing his bass playing, but admits that there’s a more profound significance to the name.

“It’s about things that lie beneath the surface, getting in deep on things,” he says.

“That’s how I feel when I play with these guys, and I wanted to do that compositionally and create that kind of environment.”

Here is your First Listen, Momentum from Mike Downes’ Root Structure.
