Mohini Dey biography
Mohini Dey is an Indian bass guitarist from Kolkata. Having grown up in an artistically stimulating environment amid a family of musicians, she started performing on stage at the age of 11 and first appeared on record at age 14 after being discovered by film composer and jazz drummer Ranjit Barot. Since then she has played alongside Alex Lifeson, Steve Vai, Marco Minnemann, Dewa Budjana, Jordan Rudess, A.R. Rahman, Jason Richardson, Zakir Husain and various other notable figures in the areas of both international jazz and rock as well as popular and classical Indian music. Reflecting these wide influences while retaining an unmistakable jazz fusion identity, her first, self-titled solo album (featuring her husband, saxophonist Mark Hartsuch, as well as Minnemann and other famed fusion drummers Narada Michael Walden and Simon Phillips) was released in 2023.

Review by Wisdom Moon

4 stars At 27, Mohini Dey is one of the most accomplished bass players of the new generation. She started playing bass at age 7 and, pushed by her father, has learned a great deal of musical styles, and has already played with many great fusion players such as Simon Philips, Greg Howe and Mike Stern.

Here, she has seamlessly blended her understanding of traditional Indian classical music with jazz, fusion, funk and even Prog Metal (!) styles to produce a firey album that has lots of bite. It's a blinding display of tight playing and blazing virtuosity, and, indeed, she's an amazing player in the mould of Jaco Pastorius, Mark King (one of her main slap influences), and Victor Wooten.

On this, her first solo outing, she shows that she's equally at home with funky, polyrhythmic slapping and melodious, sonorous solo lines. She's also very adept of using different bass pedals and effects to drastically change the sound of her bass, which leads to unusual and interesting bass textures. The album also features an impressive list of guest musicians on drums and guitar.

A well-deserved four stars.

Thanks to Mirakaze for the artist addition.
