James Whiton & The Downtown Apostles www.jameswhiton.com

"A virtuoso of acoustic upright double bass, James Whiton slaps, bows, maneuvers, and manipulates his instrument with orchestral precision and street-corner desperation." -San Francisco Weekly, 8-ll-O4

"This is some of the most unique music being played today... a soft hybrid of tone, reverberation and depth. Trumpet player John Fricke hits notes that are both soul piercing and emotive... he creates sounds that seem to emanate from the night sky." -Northwest Jazz Profile 01-05

James Whiton & The Downtown Apostles just finished their debut CD, The Way Your Mouth Moves. Check out some mp3s at www.jameswhiton.com/clips.htm

Somethingfour is a four piece instrumental band from the San Francisco Bay Area. Fusing original composed music and improvised sounds while blending in influences of jazz and experimental rock. Recently coming off a smoking show with special guest bassist Kai Eckhardt sitting in on a tune, they have quickly developed into a tight knit unit bringing a refreshing new sound to The Bay Area music scene. Check out Somethingfour's website for Mp3's and more about them.
