credit reads "bass, composition, madness" and
it's a pretty apt description. Working
with percussionist Pat Mastelotto, he uses
every bass technique imaginable, and the
result is an insanely varied set of soundscapes.
Yet even though Terrien can make his bass
chime like electric piano or scream like
lead guitar, the album's most personable
voice is the growl of his fretless."

"...What I'm hearing for sure on both Double Entendre and Judging

guitar, and it's one of the central moving forces here. Melodically
more pronounced than any of their potential brothers in style,
these are the works of quasi Jazz-Fusion. By the way, their sonic
palette is richer than that we usually expect from a trio. The
highlights include Ruins, Sundial and Judging by the Size of

Jay Terrien joins King Crimson's PAT MASTELOTTO
on All The Dolls In The Same Place. Using
only five- and six-string basses and a variety of tunings,
stretches the limits of his instrument and weaves a complex
melodic tapestry. Mastelotto supports this with some
extraordinary live and programmed parts. Tracks include
the epic "Judging
By The Size Of Carnie", which transitions seamlessly
from 4/8 to 5/8 to 6/8 to 9/8. Throughout, Mastelotto
contributes his progressive groove and chops, laying

"First up is a great CD by a great player by the name of JAY TERRIEN. This
year he released a CD by the name of "All The Dolls In The Same Place" and
it's evident from the cover artwork there that he has a healthy interest in
inflatable dolls of the female gender. But leaving that aside, the music on
this CD is REALLY
interesting. And I mean that in a good way, not the Chinese way.

which is covered by Pat Mastelotto.
I found with this album that I had it on shuffle on my iPod and
I found that often when a great track would come up, I'd look
at my iPod and it turned out to be from this album. So, WELL-RECOMMENDED!!!"
Plati: (Producer/Engineer, Former Musical Director

"I thought your record was great ... not what I expected. I thought it would
be more chops oriented, as opposed to musical ... translation: I dug it! The
sound was fab ... especially Pat's toms - he knows how to tune 'em AND hit 'em
... now there's a combination. Getting a drum sound is really no big deal
unless the drummer hasn't got those two things together."
Prog: (Music Webzine In Italy)
"Grande Jay Terrien. Ossessionato alla pornodiva Jenna Jameson
e da tante bambole gonfiabili che porta con sè (persino
in auto), il giovane bassista tira fuori un disco molto interessante,
che insieme all'ultimo Hypnoise proviene dal prolifico ambiente
Veneto West. Jay è infatti affiancato dall'ottimo Pat Mastelotto,
che alle percussioni acustiche ed elettroniche è lo "sparring
partner" del bassista. Con loro Ronan Chris Murphy, produttore
intelliigente e partecipe........."
The Vermont Music Shop:
"This album ranges from zany rock-fusion
vamps to mellow jazzier melodic pieces. The tasteful use of technology
and layering gives
Jay Terrien's bass compositions a unique quality that is often
lost in similar fusion genres. He ultimately produces a musically
attractive and well-produced album." - L. Rapkin

one day with you in Milano, IT!!"

"Jay's composing skills are nowhere weak nor cheesy. I give Jay mad
mad props for this most adventurous recording (but it's not a rugged adventure
at all)! Jay is just overflowing with lyricism, his fretless playing is
so melodic and keen that if you don't watch yourself you will not even realize
that it's a bass! What sounds like keyboards and guitar as they weave
throughout and under his up front bass playing are coming from notes all
played by Jay on
his Status Stealth-2 Fretless 6 and his Parker Fly Fretted 5 Bass!"
Horsthemke, Germany, January 2006, Freelance
"In the bass world, as elsewhere,
there are arguably two kinds of ‘madness’: the slow, creeping, dreadful
kind associated with mental disorders and chemical imbalances – and the
kind that is advertised, paraded, contrived: essentially a show-off, innocuous
kind that is essentially a publicity stunt, more than anything else. Jaco’s
ailment was an example of the former, ultimately contributing to his premature
death, while Jay Terrien’s is an example of the latter. His album is, before
one has even listened to a single track, a source of major irritation, the ‘artwork’/
photography, the relentless mugging, the aforementioned references to ‘madness’,
sex and booze, the fact that there are 69 (get it?) tracks sequenced here. Imagine
my surprise, then, on discovering that this is actually not only a mature but
an immensely happening album! Terrien is a bassist with a profound understanding
of melodic contour, detail, space, texture and orchestration, and is more than
ably assisted by King Crimson sticksman Pat Mastelotto on acoustic and electronic
percussion. The tracks are excellent – with the exception of cuts 12-68,
simply because nothing bloody happens here! The only reference point I can come
up with is Tony Levin, especially his work (but also because Mastelotto’s
in-your-face, razor-sharp precision brings to mind King Crimson). (Reading
the interview Terrien did with Martin, I realize that the production
and mixing skills
of Ronan Chris Murphy may have had something to do with this.) Nevertheless,
Terrien is very much his own man, with a unique vision – or the aural (note:
not ‘oral’, Jay!) version thereof. In short, this is a scintillating
album that every self-respecting bassist should get beyond the cover
to listen to, if not try to get to own."
got the CD last Thursday. Pretty cool stuff, takes a twisted
and talented mind to write music like that. Playing is
very good, nice tone and intonation with the fretless. I like
that the emphasis is more on musicality than pure chops.
The drumming is pretty out there, and it goes well with
your style. Good job, and good luck with your musical journey. YOU

sonorous spider webs and endless loops."

killin. I really dug it. Very unique sounding stuff, and well recorded

melody/lead lines (being a fretless guy, I enjoyed prominent
use of fretless mixed in with lots of other basses) - and

see it but what and outstanding piece of music my friend! Jay,
if you made this first pressing's cover a limited addittion...and
then made a censored cover that i could feel comfortable handing
to my kids with no worries...like an all black cover LOL..then
i think you would be ABSOLUTELY REDICULOUSLY FAMOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what and outstanding piece of music my friend!"
so there i was driving in a field yesterday...i had forgot that
the music had stopped...ok, JAY TERRIEN.... and the number 69
i have NO IDEA how i didn't even see that coming! that
was a no brainer...i am driving in a field and i wave to two
elderly men fishing and suddenly i hear a RPG go ripping past
my vehicle...oh... no it was track #69 scarring every once of
bodily fluid through my entire body...i now have all my insides
mixed up! man that was more frightening than any movie
i have ever seen! i'm gonna shut after this... but again
Jay GREAT DISC! and dang man! i want the cover for the text and
track info...ya bastid! solid black cd jackets for you
from now on...and by the way i DO pray for you! the picture
of your granny and your nasty cd cover...compared to your INCREDIBLE
MUSIC...someone has got to be praying for you so that all that
insane raw talent doesn't go to waste! i know you probably
think i am weird....but hey SO ARE YOU!

back from the lab. Man, the more I listen to your
stuff Jay, the more I realize that you and Pat are a combined
genius that will destroy the world. I'm going to have to
find a way to purchase your CD. This is THE ONLY "bass
soloist" music I've ever heard that I LIKE A LOT.
It's more awesome composition than flashy mindless chops."
It's Time For: MATT TILL'S AMAZING REVIEW
OF Jay Terrien's "All
The Dolls In the Same Place":
"I haven't received too many cds
via mail, usually I got to a store of some kind, so I don't
know the practice and
of CD shipment. I can honestly say this is the first time I've
received a CD from an artist and thought to myself, "Man,
I don't even think I'd enjoy pooping that big... I'm a busy man,
I can't be pooping that big." Yep, I received an authentic
printed (looks pretty pro... did you get this at Wal*Mart. Jay
Terrien poop art, it's autographed w/personal note (This is gonna
be worth something one of these days!!!). I gotta find a spot
for this where my girlfriend won't throw it away. "You don't
get it baby, this is Jay Terrien poop art."
Now the music: I have a very unpopular
point of view of bassists as far as solo work goes, which
is to say, I hate
it. Every single "bassist" album
I've ever heard has held little interest for me. Stanley Clarke
is the only exception. And in my opinion, the only thing that
Stanley and Jay have in common, other than their instrument of
choice... compositional skills.
When I listen to Victor Wooten's music for example, I feel a
strong leaning on technique vs. composition. It's like a weak
song with a monster bass solo.
One of my favorite things about
Jay's album, there isn't much on this album I'd call a "bass solo." Lead
bass ahoy! But I feel there is a difference.
Jay's focus on melody while maintaining rhythmic interest is
wonderful, It's a skill I've been meaning to acquire, not so
much in my metal band, but in solo work, which is almost disappeared
(but that's a rant for another day).
Without giving a nod to percussive genius Pat Mastelotto, I
would be by definition a criminal, and be beaten with oily rags
then set on fire. This is perhaps the best duo ever put together
since waffles and salmon. The term duo is used lightly due to
the fact that Jay either has a bakers dozen worth of arms or
did a bit of overdubbing (at times, Pat did as well), regardless,
the interaction between everything, both rhythmically and melodically
and spiritually and emotionally and sexually!? In every way,
every single part is a perfect addition, despite numerous overdubs,
there is plenty of space and air. So this album acts as both
background music AND foreground music, I could see myself using
this as either, depending on my mood.
An additional nod to Ronan Chris
Murphy's excellent production! Seriously, this album sounds
perfect, it's amazing
are at times more than 3 bass tracks! But it sounds clear as
a bell. Jay's "guitar" tone sounds better than most
guitarists REAL guitars sound like.
I think this should really be
in any bassists collection, for the mere sake of inspiration,
and some damn good music.
Jay's obvious technically ability, that's not the focus at all,
and that's the greatest thing about it. FEAR THE POOP!"

puisque TOUTES les femmes que vous verrez sur son site sont … des
poupées gonflables. On le voit, l’homme se veut « comique »,
de son dernier album en atteste. Mastelotto lui-même me
comme « ce type qui ne sait dire que des gros mots pendant
l’enregistrement de ce cd où, malheureusement, je
joue de la batterie,

pas dans la

en plastoque, métal : ces
idiots qui croient VRAIMENT à leurs gestes et insultes

chez Auchan. Non, étant Jay cru le déceler, un
potàP@, on se trouve ici
en forte présence d’un duo typique de « l’Ecole

rejetons de présence de Fripp. Ce cd, qui varie de l’ambient
rythmes orientonton pourquoi ils toussent, du bruit de conserve à
l’arrêt de poison (enregistré près
des poubelles, dans le fameux Garage
de P@?), aurait pu être un cd de Tony Levin, ou de Markus
Reuter, ou de
Trey Gunn ou de Gordian Knot, bref un de ces trucs exclusivement
instrumentaux, qui, de plus, instrumentalisent les poupées
puisque à l’intérieur de la pochette, Terrien
(t’es sûr ?) lèche le
sexe en PVC (pourquoi il tousse ?) devant une bande de blacks
rigolards. Rien à voir avec un quelconque prog revaïveule,
rien à voir
avec une démonstration exhibi de virtuoses si tu l’,
juste de la bonne
zique pour amateurs de batteries en Teflon, de six cordes où pendre
talent. Sans oublier la clarté absolue des titres des

"Security advice: do not leave your CD wherever
children play. The cover is absolutely tasteless. But
the music grooves. Terrien is a fine and superb bass
player and Mastelotto's playing is inventive as always. Their
is not adventurous as Mastelotto's other drum and bass projects
with Trey Gunn or Markus Reuter. It's rather more funky.
You never miss any other instruments due to the dense interplay

better start tossing words at this place?"
Sid Smith said...

welcome to the blogosphere. I

Simpson: (South African Bass Players Collective Music
"Jay Terrien is probably the most lunatic person I’ve ever
come across is my entire life – I’m not even completely sure he’s
actually from this planet, but that didn’t prevent me from asking this
nutcase who “raises hell professionally” – his words, not
mine, for an exclusive interview for www.bassplayers.co.za. Anyway,
after some delay (While Jay was busy putting the finishing touches to his new
"POWER DUO" disc),
we got down to business and this is
what Jay had to say for himself:
up the CD from the post box this morning and am at this moment, listening to
it for the second time. I had absolutely no idea what to expect - POWER DUO
- I was too scared to even imagine - at the back of my mind something
was saying, "Yeah, give it a spin but it's probably not up to much". BOY,
How wrong could I have been?!!!!!! I was speaking to Mark Roberts a few
back and he said
he loved your stuff. Well, I can tell you, I think
AMAZING - BRILLIANT - actually the word "tasteful" can
also be slotted in there wherever you want to put it."

Goodman: (Amazing 12-String Bassist/Composer)
"I like it a lot! Conceptually
it is very fresh and there is no doubt that you have musicianship and can play! Just
listening to it as music,without analyzing it, it's great! All in all,
great bass stuff. I think you did a great job! I applaud your originality
and fine bass playing. The tracks are clean and the music is very progressive.
solos, too. It's refreshing to hear some bass concepts that are not an
another player's style. Very
creative use of your bass! I think you are on to something."

International Institute Of Bass)
"I'm listening to it right now Jay. Very interesting! It's definitely
unique. Cool tonalities."
Heim: (North Carolina's Finest Bass Aficionado)
"I love it, love it, love it. Let me go grab your record and listen
to it again. It's intense! Jay Terrien's solo album is a breakout album
in the bass world.
So now in a generation of bassists
who are trying to emulate their idols voices (I, myself,
am guilty in several ways. It's
not bad to admire them) we need more voices to hear from. Jay
Terrien's debut album stands out, not as a chops fest, but as
a perfectly tasteful compositional album that anyone could enjoy.
Jay isn't the only amazing player
on this album though, as Pat Mastelotto pounds a path down
in a forest of the musical
world for Jay to walk right through, showing that he too, has
something different to offer for us to learn from.
So don't just read this review,
get the album and see what you yourself think about everything
from Jay Terrien's mesmerizing
fretless solos to Pat Mastelotto's pounding electronic and acoustic
Scott M. Mapes: (P.E.,

"I am half way through your latest release...remarkable! Ronan Chris
Murphy's production and Patty M's drum kit aside...this effort is on the verge
of something showing your creative mastery of your instrument in a very "King
Crimson" style and fashion (which is hard to accomplish). George Harrison
once said Ravi Shankar's daughter Anoushka was one with her sitar...having seen
her perform live, she is her sitar and her sitar
is her...the same comes to mind with you and your strings.

FULL REVIEW HERE!!
"I played the album over the weekend and will be reviewing it over at my
blog. Short version is that that there's a great feel to it - I like the
lyricism of some the compositions i.e. there's a real structure to them rather
than a riff and then a bunch of solo's which no matter how good the playing,
can become a little flat after a while. Like I say, I'll go into more detail
about it when I review it, but I just wanted to give you an early heads up to
say that it's a most welcome addition to the yellow room rotation."
