Electric bass and stick player Sean Malone is quite a master at what he does. The stick, by the way, is a multi-stringed electric instrument that apparently one taps rather than plucks. Sean has a CD out that shows off his abilities quite well. Cortlandt (Free Electric Sound) puts Malone in the company of various guitarists (such as Trey Gunn) and drummers for a fusion-based program. Sean has the facility, if not quite the sound, of Jaco Pastorious. He’s good!
