Studio Stu, with his state-of-the-art Studivarious single string bass, unique Brooklyn humor, and unusual, hypnotic vocals, is a master...a one string wonder, combining a traditional folk instrument and a classic jazz form, to create a third thing (one we haven’t quite figured out what to call yet).....fearless in delivery and willing to navigate uncharted paths through the improvisational wilderness; he is ‘el ultimo hombre del lounge’.Studio Stu takes the very best in classic jazz and originals, and twists and bends them into what he calls ‘evocative jazz & exotic lounge’. He starts with standard tunes and a loop machine, except, nothing is sacred.....improv is rampant...lyrics are changed at will...notes and chords are bent and perverted...familiar languages are obliterated....harmonies are sweet and sour perfection......yet, serious, sophisticated and uncompromising in execution. He is one in-tune, out-of-tune, offbeat, beatnick.
