For his debut album, bassist/composer Bryan Doherty assembles some of Chicago's finest musicians to perform an expansive array of original music. From the hard-hitting, rock-inspired "Corned Beef" to the slow and soulful "Baby Nostradamus," Doherty's band exhibits a versatility respected by jazz loyalists and groove fans alike. "Zigurat" layers a guitar and saxophone melody over the bass before transitioning into a James Brown like funk in 6/4. Doherty gives a definitive nod to his influences such as Jaco, Sly Stone, Herbie as he charts a sophisticated and inspired direction for his music. Rigamarole features guitarist John McLean.
