Biography

When Richard Bona's new album Ten Shades Of Blues appears this autumn, ten years will have gone by since his first project, Scenes From My Life (released in 1999), a whole decade.

Product Description

Richard Bona's 2009 album Ten Shades Of Blues appears ten years since his first project, Scenes From My Life (released in 1999). In the case of the Cameroonian bassist and singer, it's not so easy to condense a decade into just a few short lines because the man is such a multiple character, with many lives impelled by his permanent curiosity and desire to play. And each of these traits lies at the heart of his latest recording, an album devoted to the Blues and its key notes that can be recognized in all cultures. So here we have an album open to all kinds of encounters, a record on which Richard Bona is our guide taking us on a tour with his Indian, Country and Jazz musicians to the four corners of the earth! Universal.

Review

"...Richard Bona is music's most fluent new voice..." "...catch him in the middle of a heartfelt phrase, and it's as if his notes are chosen just for your ears. Add his haunting falsetto vocals, and now you're listening to arguably the most identifiable, soul-stirring voice on the bass guitar since Jaco Pastorius." -- Bass Player

"...extraordinary bass playing...heartfelt bass playing...you'll never find a reason not to be entranced." -- Global Rhythm

"Imagine an artist with Jaco Pastorious's virtuosity, George Benson's vocal fluidity, Joao Gilberto's sense of song and harmony, all mixed up with African culture. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you Richard Bona!" -- Los Angeles Times

"It's clear Richard Bona's going to be a star, from first exposure." -- Down Beat

"It's not cool to be impressed by the latest whiz kid to hit town. But even the hippest of the hip give it up when the subject turns to Richard Bona, a slight, shy virtuoso of the electric bass guitar from a mud-hut village deep in Cameroon." -- Newsweek

Format: Audio CD
This guys is just a multifaceted artist, composer, singer and if you love music then you should be happy getting any Bona's Cd. Those who want to live in a bubble and spend their time trying to see in Richard Bona only a Jazz musician, should probably stay away or best, open up a little and enjoy life. It is like asking people to look the same while there is enough world out there to explore.
Richard Bona is an Artist and he immerses himself in worldly influences. You heard him in Brazil in the last album, in the 10 shades, he brings you to India and the notion of Orientalism of Edward Said as a dream and imagination flowing takes all its meaning here. So let your soul travel while sipping your favorite cup of tea, chocolate or telling your date how much you enjoy your time together..lol. Please listen to the like country song No 9 I think. How about the 2?
Invitation au Voyage will be how I describe this album and the last one. So yes travel please.

Richard is wonderful! Sadly, i have never had the opportunity to see him live, but I have many recordings of his. This one is great, but I need more listening time to determine where it places in the general scheme of things. What I have heard so far is brilliant.

The album is great, but that goes without saying, since it is Richard Bona. His bass playing is unsurpassed, as is his singing. Richard played with Joe Zawinul. Nuff said.

All of his music is GREAT & this is no exception. This one has a few flavors of India here & there, but the rest is classic Bona. He is a nice mix of jazz & soul with Cameroon vibes throughout, very nice, always calming then energizing! Richard Bona RULES!!!
