The Best of Alberto Rigoni
After a month of collaboration, I am really excited to announce my latest book: The Best of Alberto Rigoni.
Alberto Rigoni is an Italian bass player and composer who rapidly gained audience in the international music scene thanks to his modern and fresh sound, far away from any well known music cliché. His solo albums (Something Different, Rebirth, Three Wise Monkeys and Overloaded, worldwide released between 2008 and 2014), between progressive rock metal and fusion, also feature legendary musicians such as Kevin Moore (ex Dream Theater), Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson), Göran Edman (ex Yngwie Malmsteen), Michael Manring and many others.
Alberto has been featured on the cover of magazines such as Bass Magazine Japan, Bass Musician Magazine and Bajos Y Bajistas. Moreover, On March 2015 the prestigious Bass Guitar Magazine (UK) released Alberto’s CD anthology called “Into THE BASS”.
The book includes songs from throughout his career such as 2008's BASSex, 2012's Kikazaru and Bass Guy, released next month.

Sorry to Hear You're a Bassist
Southampton held it's first bass event last night at The Art House Cafe, aptly titled Sorry to Hear You're a Bassist.. The venue was host to some incredible bass players - A Ninja Slob Drew Me, BassDbler, Grant Sharkey and Steve Lawson. If you haven't already checked these guys out, I strongly suggest you do! Solo bass is in a very good position at the moment, and each of these performances displayed the variety you can get out of our instrument.
I was there with a collection of books and mailing list sign-up form, so if you're now receiving this as a result - thank you!
Here I am with my display...
Thank you all as ever for your support!
