Special Stage

Author: on June 20, 2013

On a record brimming with only the sincerest dedications to human emotion, “Special Stage” effectively incorporates both US and European classical forms together with Stephen Bruner’s inhuman, hyper-speed walking bass.  Swirling bass études form a backbone for orchestra-tinted progressions amidst major key tonal classic soul “doo-wah” harmonies.  Thematically, Bruner downplays his lyrical genius by contrasting those caught up in the world’s rat race with the actual point of it all.  In the end, “life is just a game / it’s all in your hands“.
