Ali Bey, My Finest Hour

Today an album from a very fine electric bassist, Ali Bey. My Finest Hour (self released) presents a power fusion trio of Larry Andrews on electric guitar, Timothy Omar Stroud on drums, and Bey on four-string.

There are some guests here and there but in the end it is Bey and the trio who shine forth. Ali is a technically endowed, expressive presence throughout. Some great bass playing is in order. But then Larry and Timothy are also fine players.

It is original fusion-rock music of appeal that you hear. And yes, the bass is out front and beautifully extroverted!

Ali Bey is no joke and his band take no prisoners!! Put it on and revel. If you are a bassist, you will want to go woodshed.
