For those of you who view the electric bass as either a support instrument in the rhythm section, or as a solo weapon wielded by cats like Wooten and Clarke, here's a third category for ya: singer/songwriter/bass monster. Or in other words, Seth Horan. This Buffalo bassist doesn't so much accompany himself but rather sings along with the bass in a kind of two-part harmony. The dynamics are awesome as he leaves the octaves between his voice and instrument open for their co-mingling coolness.
Seth Horan performs Thursday, October 11 at Lovin Cup, 300 Park Point Place. 8 p.m. $3. lovincup.com.
