He has played and/or performed with everyone from Toto, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson to Eric Clapton, Beyoncé, Andrea Bocelli and Daft Punk. Now popular session bassist Nathan East is recording his first solo album. The yet-untitled set -- the first in a planned two-volume project -- is due March 25, 2014 from Yamaha Entertainment Group.
"It's a celebration of my musical friends and my musical life over 30 years' worth of experiences and influences," says East during a recording break at Los Angeles' Ocean Way Studios. "The one thing I've learned is that I love a collaborative effort, the spirit of making music with a lot of great musicians in the room."
