Mike Frost is, in the parlance of our times, all about that bass. The Aikenite is a former student of Jaco Pastorius, and his sensei’s influence shows in Frost’s deep understanding of advanced harmony with ferocious technical prowess. But there’s plenty of crisp treble in his eponymous band, whose smooth crossover jazz boasts flourishes of fusion, hard bop, Latin jazz and more. — Patrick Wall, Free Times, Columbia, SC: July 15, 2015
Mike Frost sent us this great clip of his band performing the classic Chick Corea tune, “Armando’s Rhumba.” Taken from a performance at the Shapeshifer Lab in Brooklyn, the band is cooking with some Latin flavor.
Frost gets a warm sound from his fretless to pin the band together. “The video is showing my new Fretless Clifford Roi 4 string bass with was designed to sound like an upright bass,” he says.
