DESCRIPTION In 2000, Bunny released CAB from the newly formed band of the same name as he and co-founding members Tony MacAlpine and Dennis Chambers gave a whole new spin to fusion. With Bunny’s melodic flair on the bass, as well as his unmatched dexterous playing and “wow” factor, this band earned Brunel his second Grammy-nomination from his album CAB 2! As the leader of CAB, Bunny Brunel has continued to blow his listeners away both during live performances and with his powerfully produced albums as both CAB and (as the artist) Bunny Brunel. At the top of the fusion food chain, he continues his legacy as one of the four founding fathers of the bass fusion movement—an exclusive title Bunny holds with Stanley Clarke, Jeff Berlin, and fellow fretless player Jaco Pastorius.
A melodic writer, Brunel creates memorable melodic overtones with modal changes that transcends most recordings from the fusion genre. As complex as his music is, you walk away humming his melodies. But you are cheating yourself if you haven’t seen him perform. Experiencing him in concert is transformative. Nothing compares to drinking in a performance by this masterful bass sorcerer!
