O’s Notes: Lex takes his bass across the jazz ruler playing fusion on the opener, swinging with “Sometimes I’m Happy” and giving us a taste of samba on “Vivo Sohando” featuring the lovely voice of Maggie Grebowicz. He also hits some cool blues with “Gee Baby, Ain’t I Good To You” and cinematic on “My Foolish Heart” with strings. That’s just a sampling of the variety as Lex presents The many Faces of the Bass, he does it well and with class!
