Review in "Bass Musician Magazine" by Damian Erskine
I'm pretty amazed by this disc.. I had never heard of Vik Momjian
until I got an email from Victor Little telling me that I had to
check this guy out. I'm very glad I did!! Excursion is a blend of
latin, middle eastern & Jazz. In searching for a comparison for
you, I can only think of Michel Camilo with Anthony Jackson and
I believe that's really only because I couldn't help but be blown
away by Vik in the same way that I'm blown away by Anthony's playing.
Primarily, Vik has amazing time and placement of notes and displays
sheer taste throughout everything that he plays. The band is smoking
and Vik's playing is just a perfect fit here... Holding down the
groove in a way that's never in the way of the music but still provides
plenty of the "wow" factor for any bass players in the house (not
so much because he's blazing fast or playing all the right licks,
but because everything is played precisely right and in precisely
the right spot...). I will say that the EQ of the mix is a tad on
the modern and mid-rangey side for my taste but the music carries
it's weight and is definitely something worth checking out!
