Indefatigable bassist/composer teams up with Italian heavyweight Marco Machera in highly creative new release

Maybe you know Julie Slick from her work with the Crimson ProjeKct, where she’s performed alongside music giants Adrian Belew and Tony Levin. Or maybe it was from her role in the Rock School documentary or one of her tours with the likes of Jon Anderson, Stuart Copeland, Ann Wilson or Alice Cooper. If you’re a Julie Slick fan, you’re also familiar with her solo releases, which include support from Robert Fripp, Marco Minnemann and others.

Slick’s latest project is Fourth Dementia, a collaboration with Italian bassist/singer/songwriter Marco Machera. Inspired by a series of “bass duets” performed across Italy earlier this year, the musical chemistry between Slick and Machera morphed into a full-blown album. Fourth Dementia not only beautifully showcases the role of solo electric bass, but also captures the brilliant interplay between two basses, a challenging feat, to say the least. The music on the album, all Slick and Machero originals, is enhanced by drummers Eric Slick and Pat Mastelotto and violinist Sarah Anderson.
