Review – Not Dancing For Chicken (Bass Player Magazine)

(from the ‘Bass Player Recommends’ section of the February 2003 issue)

“Armed with a Line 6 DL4 Delay Modeler and a Gibson Echoplex Digital Pro, solo bassist Steve Lawson craftily constructs each song’s texture by combining the standard color palette of bass sounds and techniques with the expanded technical palette of loops, layers, effects, and EBow electronic ‘bowing’. The marvelously musical result on Lawson’s second album, which tends toward a mellow, ambient vibe that sometimes recalls new age music and ’80s art-rock, has as much to do with Lawson’s melodic sense as it does to do with his technical mastery.”
