From Los Angeles to Berlin, audiences have been captivated by the musical sound of
Das Vibenbass. The group’s independently released debut, Animals and Robots, sold
over 1,000 copies in a mere six months. Sustaining a spot in the top five of Seattle’s
KEXP 90.3 jazz charts for over 5 months, the quartet was then nominated, alongside
Wayne Horvitz, for Best Jazz/Experimental act in the Seattle Weekly’s ‘Best of 2006.’
Tours of the United States, Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic have spawned a
devoted fanbase whose discriminating tastes welcome only the best into their clubs.
Venues include Seattle’s Triple Door, Hamburg’s Birdland, and The Tunnel in Vienna.
This quartet continues to amaze audiences with their precise, uncompromising timbre.
Geoff Larson and JC Bockman structure the group’s prime sensibility with flooding bass
and raucous drums respectively. Josh Clifford lends his versatile tenor saxophone to
passages that require both pestilence and boon, while Justin Sorensen assertively
haunts the sound with his contemporary approach on the vibraphone.
Das Vibenbass seeks to challenge the borders of jazz today, and their new album
Fodakis is evidence that they intend to be an important voice for many years to come.
