Directed by John Hart, Bass Desires is an instrumental Jazz combo at the Frost School of Music modeled off a group that was formed in the 1980s by the influential bass player and Jazz figure, Marc Johnson.

Bass Desires consists of a Jazz Quartet with the instrumentation of:

  • Two guitars
  • Bass
  • Drums

This group explores a wide variety of styles within the modern Jazz idiom, from swing and bebop to fusion and Americana, and beyond. It delves into a wide range of possibilities in group texture and dynamics with an emphasis on interaction and a unified aesthetic.
