      much thanks to you all...yes, it's quite different, but we do feel a quirky sort of communication that makes it work.

      I have wanted to see these two together live for a year now. Living on the Oregon coast, I had to be content with youtube videos. I did see Stephan last year at the Portland Jazz Festival. This was a special kind of experience as a listener. The ability to request a song! That's pretty neat. Looking forward to next time. Keep on doing it. Let this thing catch on. Looking forward to my download.

Memphis-bred, Grammy-nominated bassist/composer Stephan Crump is a rising light on the New York music scene. Shunning barriers of genre, he has performed and recorded in the US and across the globe with a diverse list of artists - from late blues legend Johnny Clyde Copeland to Portishead's Dave McDonald, Patti Austin, The Violent Femmes' Gordon Gano, Dave Liebman, Billy Hart, Sonny Fortune, Greg Osby, The Mahavishnu Project and Bobby Previte, among others.

As a longtime collaborator with adventurous jazz composers (since 1999 with Vijay Iyer) as well as guitar wizard Jim Campilongo and radiant singersongwriter Jen Chapin, he has become known for the elegance and purposeful groove of his acoustic and electric bass playing, and for transforming his instrument into a speaking entity with magnetic pull on audiences. As a composer, Crump is emerging as a singular voice, one who “avoids obvious routes but manages never to lose his way” (NYTimes).

His music can be heard in numerous films and on his eight critically
acclaimed albums, the latest of which, "Thwirl", featuring his all-string Rosetta Trio (“a highly-original ensemble” JazzWise), has been lauded by DownBeat for its “superior interplay, chemistry, delicacy and vision”.

Currently, Stephan can be heard as a member of Vijay Iyer Trio, Jen
Chapin Band, Ches Smith Quartet, Rez Abassi Acoustic Quartet, Liberty Ellman Quintet, Secret Keeper, and his own Rosetta Trio.

Crump launched his solo performance career as an invited artist at the 2009 International Society of Bassists conference and has since released three recordings documenting his duo collaborations with alto saxophonist Steve Lehman, pianist James Carney, and guitarist Mary Halvorson.

Stephan is an enthusiastic endorser of Velvet strings, Aguilar bass amplifiers, AMT bass microphones, and Czech Ease Travel Bass.
