Double bass and voice

"Singing bass players are common enough creatures in rock music, but they are rare as money in jazz. Sydney's Steve Arie not only sings and plays double bass, he eliminates all the middle men and women, and sings against his own solo accompaniment. To date his reputation has been built on his fine bass playing but he brings the seasoned jazz musician's feel for phrasing to the singing part, as well as an attractive voice." - John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

"Steve Arie is one of the great Australian musicians" - Steve Brien (James Morrison, Dale Barlow, Don Burrows, Giacomo Gates, John Mastrioanni), lecturer in jazz studies, Sydney Conservatorium of Music

"Arie's bass playing is excellent" - John McBeath, Weekend Australian
