Miles Mosley Releases “Uprising”
Miles Mosley’s long awaited album, Uprising, is now available. The monster double bassist created the album with his band the West Coast Get Down during the intense month-long recording session that also yielded The Epic for saxophonist Kamasi Washington.
Mosley utilizes his distinct bass playing to serve each song, either with a solid groove or other-worldly effects. Uprising has the entire Get Down in full force plus a choir and strings section.
“I wanted to create a work that was natural and intimate but still maintained a sense of grandeur.” the bassist shares. “As if you were best friends with a giant. The West Coast Get Down, the Strings, the Choir; I sought to utilize all of these elements together to create something with memorable melodies and a message to the people that we are here for them. We are and want to be the loudspeaker for their hearts.”
