Michael Bates’ Clockwise Reviewed

From Blogcritics:

Bates is not exactly a newcomer; Clockwise, just released, is his third record and he’s appeared on more than a dozen others. Hailing from Canada, Bates has developed a reputation in avant garde circles as an advanced bassist and composer. It’s been my experience as a listener that good bassists and composers seem to go hand in hand. Charles Mingus set the mold several decades ago. Drew Gress and Anne Mette Iversen are just a couple of recent examples that come to mind.
