Best known as the bassist in the Grammy Award-winning hard rock band Living Colour, Doug Wimbish staked his first musical claim as a member
of the original Sugar Hill Records house band ... With guitarist Skip
McDonald and drummer Keith Leblanc, he wrote and played on many of the
original hip-hop anthems, including “The Message,” “White Lines,” and
“That’s the Joint.” Soon after, he moved to London, and with McDonald,
Leblanc and British producer Adrian Sherwood, formed a legendary
industrial funk band called TACK>>HEAD. With the release of two TACK>>HEAD albums, \"Friendly as a Hand Grenade\" and \"Strange Things,\" Doug became more recognized, and his career accelerated wildly. He earned the reputation as “The Journeyman Bassist,” sought after and collaborating on records and tours with dozens of well-known artists, including The Rolling Stones, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Herb Alpert, B.B. King, Annie Lennox, Carly Simon, Madonna, Seal, Joe Satriani, Afrika Bambattaa, James Brown, George Clinton, Tarja Turunen, and Mos Def.
CinemaSonics is, as expected, filled with Doug’s virtuosity, electronics and signature ambient sound, but it also showcases his often over-looked melodic, lyrical and compositional skills. From horn-rich “James Bond” orchestration, to 1970s “Superfly” funk, urban “Beat Street” vibes, and darker “Miami Vice” moods, CinemaSonics is a comprehensive and stylish musical document ... A record that serves as a soundtrack for Doug’s rich and eclectic musical life.
