More press reviews on the album Pick up your Bass
“Pick up your bass is a remarkable CD.
(..) She succeeded in incorperating a lot of different music styles, with the bass guitar at the centerpoint, in the tradition of bass gods like Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller(…)
The diversity in styles fascinates because of the smart way in which Simone has composed her music. (…) She has developed a strong sense for melody and harmony, and swings like no other when she uses her slap technique.” (Rinus van der Heijden)
