It took a bass player to return vocals to their proper place on Duets — a record
that's a model of simplicity. On the tracks on this LP you'll find Rob
Wasserman's bass, and another voice. The result is a charming collection of
duets featuring bassist Wasserman joined by special guests Aaron Neville, Rickie
Lee Jones, Bobby McFerrin, Lou Reed, Jennifer Warnes, Dan Hicks, Cheryl Bentyne
and Stephane Grappelli. The experimental release pairs the human voice with the
bass guitar, resulting in a collection of unique and soulful material.
Unlike much of current music, where vocals are squelched and compression molded
into something of an afterthought, Wasserman sought to create on Duets a music
record — without technology interfering. "It's kinda like being in a club. It
lets you get closer to the song," Wasserman says.
Not surprisingly, Duets ranks among the most breathtaking collections of popular
songs issued in the 1980s.
"Far be it for me to renege on my doubts about 'audiophile' LPs
played ad nauseam at shows, but the middle volume of Wasserman's trilogy
deserved acclaim... You gotta hear it." - Ken Kessler, www.hifinews.co.uk,
