Brian Bromberg indeed completes a full circle here on his new recording, meaning, he started his musical career on the drums and now returns to sit behind the kit. Guests include Alex Acuna, Charlie Bishirat, Bob Sheppard, Mitch Forman, Arturo Sandoval, Lee Thornburg, Kirk Whalum plus more. This 360 view is most exemplified by the repertoire - Full Circle is pretty much a straight-ahead jazz date unlike anything of Brian's career and yes, he does play a bunch of bass too. There is no guitar on this recording. All guitar-sounding tracks are played on a piccolo bass. Brian's piccolo bass on this recording is an arched top hollow body bass guitar that is tuned to the register of a guitar, one full octave and a fourth above standard bass tuning.
