Preview and download Something Different:
Rigoni is a very technically proficient player, many of the tracks feature bass loops where he lays down a groove and solos on top of it along with drums and other instrumentation. He shows off a Jaco-style harmonic integration in the songs (such as “SMS), a flair for techno-style grooves (“The Factory”) and beautiful melodies (“Sweet Tears”).
