    Lovers of jazz fusion and devotees of the possibilities of the electric bass have reason to thank the heavens for the arrival of THUNDER. A collaboration between three of the genre's reigning heavyweights-Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, and Victor Wooten-THUNDER offers up a cornucopia of low-end sonic playfulness and mastery. With tracks that range from orchestral (opener "Maestros de Las Frencuencias Bajas) to moody, spaghetti-western film music ("Los Tres Hermanos"), the album mixes jazz, funk, ambient, light jazz, and classical elements. Clarke, Miller, and Wooten weave their instruments around each other, creating plenty of varied interplay, and making this enjoyable set a bass-lover's dream.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.80) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hese 13 tracks showcase killer chops and unique arrangements....The title track is a metal-edged funk stomper..."
    JazzTimes (pp.94-95) - "[T]he three bassists are never less than stunning in their mastery of the four-string....Miller's production is often sparse, the better to showcase the stars..."
    Paste (magazine) (p.65) - "Their debut, THUNDER, proves playful: With vocals relegated to the background, the bass takes the melody, the rhythm, the low end, the high end and all the solos, creating an admirably diverse array of sounds and styles."
