ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With his fretted five-string electric bass, Schoedler reveals on By the Water what it means to be a groove monster. Whether holding down a mesmerizing electric groove or taking off on one of his many intense, melodic solo flight exhibitions, Schoedler's playing completely dominates this project from start to finish. Schoedler can groove for days. His tone is thick and penetrating. But don't think for even a second that this is just another one of those recordings that features just the bass player's skills. Oh no. On this his debut outing as a leader, Schoedler has composed and arranged some of the hippest and most original sounding tracks I've ever come across. Stylistically, this project could best be classified as a groove-infected fusion of funk and jazz influences. Featuring the impeccable work of world renowned guitarist Mike Stern on three tracks, Schoedler has made what was an already exceptional recording now extraordinary. A complete track listing includes: "The Mystic", "Strides", "For the Family", "By the Water", "By a Hair", and "Southbound." Bottom Line: With his ability to lay down some of the tastiest sounding grooves and melodically inspired solo excursions ever put to tape along with his strong compositional skills, on By the Water Craig Schoedler demonstrates some of the most inspiring electric grooving, soloing, and writing that I've heard in a long, long time. After just one listening to this project, it became completely obvious to me that the bass community will be hearing much more from Craig Schoedler in the future.

Excellent...please keep it coming...gonna buy it...that's ten!
It's most definetly difficult to emotionally displaying the appreciation of an ever-learning "by-ear" bassist in words. To hear a great variety of grooves, melodies and musicianship from a new voice is always a blessing. Marcus Miller, John Pattitucci, Matthew Garrison, Brian Bromberg, Tom Kennedy, Kai Eckhardt, Gary Willis & Anthony Jackson are a few of my influences. This offers an ideal of what I like and how high my standards are...I'd put Craig right in there! Keep 'em coming!

FROM WHAT I HEARD THIS IS PHAT! YOU WILL DIG IT.
CONTACTED CRAIG JUST NOW AND I'M WAITING TO HEAR FROM HIM TO PURCHASE IT. SMOOTH YET AGGRESSIVE. LOUD BUT SOFT. JAZZ BUT ROCKS. I DIG? YOU DIG?

Mark Sobus

I'm really loving this CD. Craig has produces some real tasty stuff here. I'm really diggin' his bass tone and groove.

Cuts 1 and 5 are immediate favorites that bear many repeat listenings. I can't seem to get enough of this CD.

Tight grooves, excellent band
This album can't be faulted. Schoedler's compositions all work very well, and the band do them justice with some beautifully-integrated playing. Whether in the section or in his several well-taken solos, the leader is right on the money throughout, and combines with drummer Steve Jordan to create a range of tight, bouncing, snappy grooves to die for. Good recorded sound too; an excellent band, a terrific bass player, and a first-rate album.
