Linley Marthe

From the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, Linley Marthe is considered by some as the world’s foremost jazz bassist. That's quite a claim. But here is what someone who certainly knew about bass players had to say:

“Linley is just a phenomenon. I don’t know if there is anybody who can touch him in terms of overall bass playing.” (Joe Zawinul interview www.zawinulonline.org)

Linley played with The Joe Zawinul Syndicate during the last several years before Zawinul died. Other top artists Linley has worked with include Cheb Mami, Dave Liebman, Nguyen Le, Trilok Gurtu, Jean Luc Ponty, Paco Séry and Randy Brecker.
