Bill Laswell is one of the most prolific, influential and innovative musicians of the end of the last century: bass player, record producer, label owner, his carrier escapes every classification. Starting from the enormous hit “Rockit” by Herbie Hancock, Laswell boasts an outstanding artistic portfolio which includes, among the others, collaborations with Johnny Rotten, William Burroughs, Pharoah Sanders, Julian Schnabel, Sly Dunbar, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and Yoko Ono.
“Baselines” is the artist’s debut solo album, a jazz-funk experimental release that came out in 1983 via Celluloid Records, the legendary label that Bill Laswell contributed to making glorious.
