Mo with Affinity

‘BASS PLUS’ is a dip into this later repertoire.

A specially-curated selection of the most ambient and chilled instrumental recordings imaginable, it’s trademarked by the artist’s exemplarily sinewy and imaginative playing abetted by contributions from a roll-call of musical talent including Gary Moore, Ray Russell, Rod Argent, Simon Phillips, Frank Ricotti, Ray Warleigh, Iain Bellamy, Gary Husband amongst others.
