Album of Yesterday

View, by Bryan Beller (2003): Beller is known as the musical partner in crime of Mike Keneally, playing bass with Mike for more than a decade. It was only natural that he'd eventually put together a solo album. View includes solo bass workouts and a varied selection of full "band" cuts (featuring Keneally, Rick Musallam, Toss Panos, and a host of others). Choice melodies, tasty playing, and deep grooves are found throughout. Bass players (like drummers) sometimes get lost in the shuffle musically and some of them crank out solo albums to justify that status. Not the soon-to-be Nashvillean Beller.
