Rigoni, Alberto: Something Different

Alberto Rigoni is one of the more dynamic bass players, which he exhibits throughout his solo debut Something Different. Alberto is also the bass player with progressive band Twinspirits. The title Something Different actually sums the album up pretty well, this is not an extension of his main band even though there are some progressive elements present, from what I have read the album gave Alberto the opportunity to express himself and branch out with impressive displays of fusion/rock and funk. Yes his bass is the dominant instrument as you would expect but the album wouldn't be complete without the other instruments.

You wont find the level of extreme complexity as exhibited on say a Planet X release, all the musicians present are capable performers and while there is still a technical level present it's just not to the same degree. Then again that isn't the aim here, the emphasis instead is on delivering the listener with variety and catchiness in those tracks on offer, making this quite the accessible release from Alberto, appealing to a wider audience.

Something Different combines tranquil/ambient instrumental moments with others like the upbeat funky and very different, as you can judge from the title "BASSsex" one of two tracks with vocals, the heavier "Roller Coaster" being the other. Are you a fan of well played instrumental music with a slick sound or maybe you are looking for 'something different' then give this a try.
