There aren’t many bass players who had been a soloist for decades before they started to play the bass. This experience adds a tremendous value to Michaels ability to understand, to follow and to support a singer or any melody player.
Michael Gustorff Is fluent on the bass guitar. His favorite one is the fretless bass. He plays with diverse ensembles, from singers and singer-songwriters to jazz and jazz-influenced pop bands, such as Rudi Rhodes Bob Dylan and Rio Reiser projects, Three Of Live, TwoBassN’Vox with singer Uli Wewelsiep and double bass player Haro Eller, Bernard Brogue Band, Andre Enthöfers Soundscapes…. In addition he regularly joins different big bands.
With his own project ‘The Gust GrooveJam’, Michael Gustorff plays original music with beautiful harmonies and grooves. Check it out!
