Eddie Gómez: Low End Theorist

The most well-respected bassist you’ve probably never heard of, Puerto Rico-born and NYC-bred Eddie Gómez laid it down for decades as the main man behind such legends as  Miles Davis, Bill Evans, Dizzy Gillespie, Wayne Shorter, Steps Ahead, Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, and Chick Corea among many others. But forget all that: the tracks from his 1976 solo album “Down Stretch” speak for themselves. So groovy, so mellow – just put on your headphones and take a ride. As if the album cover didn’t speak for itself. Awesome stuff – enjoy.
