Cai Marle-Garcia
“Mr. Ears”
www.caimarlegarcia.com

The UK’s own Cai Marle-Garcia is poised to impress with his debut release, “Mr. Ears”. Primarily a fretless player (sporting a fretless Linc Luthier bass in one pic.. Many don’t know about these beautiful instruments but my first fretless was a Linc and they are just wonderful basses), Cai has a playing style very reminiscent of Jaco, but his compositions are all his own and contain a great balance of groove, jazz sensibilities & emotive melodies. Not to focus on the Jaco thing (which is most fretless players pet-peev) but this album did remind me quite a bit of Jaco’s debut solo album (and I mean that in a good way).

Cai will surely make a splash with this CD, and deservedly so. He’s a great player with a great band playing honest music. There is no pretense here, he’s playing from the heart!
