Bart Flos – Expectations (2003)
Expectations by Bart Flos (2003). “This CD, Expectations, consists of jazz, blues and fusion compositions. Some are in a duo fashion (bass and piano) others have the full array of possible sound and rhythm combinations provided by the RD700. The styles will vary from “digital acoustic Jazz” with muted trumpet, saxophone sections, acoustic bass and drums to more contemporary fusion type compositions with fretless bass and Fender Rhodes.”
Bart Flos – Piano
“This is the second of three solo albums released as part of NextSteps Projects Stage 2. This album contains compositions with various instruments played on one digital keyboard in different styles: jazz, blues, latin and fusion accompanied by magnificent digital drum scores that allow me to focus on the bass in my left hand and all the rest in my right. Most of the work is improvised on the spot.”
