Gary Wicks, Bass Upright on SoundBetter

"Wicks' playing, in the spirit of bass royalty Scott LaFaro, Charles Mingus, and Chuck Israels, is right on the money in allowing the listener to "feel" the bass, instead of "overly hear" it. His bass lines are fresh, original, and together with the gentlemen of his rhythm section, weaves a perfect carpet for soloists to strut upon. By letting his fellow artists shine, he shines as well." - Kathryn Ballard Shut, Jazz Times

"Mr. Wicks is clearly the Stephane Grappelli of the bass..." - Peter Rutenberg, Grammy winning conductor and producer

"They're backed by just a quartet...Gary Wicks was a strong presence on acoustic and Electric (bass)." R.J. Deluke, review of The Manhattan Transfer at the Egg, Albany, NY ( All About
