Hadrien Feraud Releases Sophomore Effort as Solo Artist

Hadrien Feraud: Born in the 80sFrench jazz bass virtuoso Hadrien Feraud (Chick Corea, John McLaughlin) has released his second album, Born in the 80s.

The album mixes jazz fusion, R&B, hip-hop, and soul and the 1984-born Feraud acknowledges the record’s not all about the bass — “It’s more about music,” says Feraud, who was inspired to commit himself to bass after hearing a Jaco Pastorius record. “For bass you can go see me on YouTube!”

Born in the 80s is available as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).

Here’s a taste of the record:

This record was a real disappointment. The lyrical content was poorly thought out and musically it felt like I was walking through the NAMM show. It’s possible to be a virtuoso and have taste, Hadrien simply does not. Incredible player, absolutely but this album is certainly NOT about music.
