Korn Bassist Fieldy To Release Solo Jazz Album In November

Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, internationally known as the bassist and co-founder of Korn will release his long-awaited jazz fusion album titled Bassically this November 17. The album will have 17 tracks and be a departure from rap-metal some of his other projects outside of Korn have featured.

Fieldy commented on the album:

“This is a bass album that encompasses the last nine years of my life on the road recording with a variety of special and unique basses. This project features recordings of mine from dressing rooms, tour buses, hotel rooms and other unique locations playing on basses just as obscure as the locations. It’s a blend of funk, fusion, and rock. I can’t wait to share it with you.”

Producer Anthony “Q” Quiles”, Fieldy’s usual co-conspirator and mixed by Chris Collier, helped to craft the album. The record features guest appearances by three of Fieldy’s bandmates: drummer Ray Luzier plays drums, bongos, shaker, tambourine and djembe on the songs ‘Bass O Rama’, ‘Step Right Up’, ‘Basque K Cinco’, ‘Zibba Zibop’ and ‘Mr. Bassmen’; guitarist Brian “Head” Welch plays on ‘I Wuv Bass Mon’; and singer Jonathan Davis beatboxes on ‘JD Fresh’.
