The Review:

Carol Soto is a local LA musician who’s in a instrumental band called Tribus. On his solo release, Tribal Behaviour, he really goes solo.... no other musicians.. ALL Carlos! I had reviewed Carlos’ band Tribus cd a few years ago and wasn’t impressed by the sameness each song possessed. This is a step up from that release where it’s a true solo album of Carlos on various forms of bass.

The music is fusion and funk based and all instrumental. Carlos can be compared to at times by the likes of Les Claypool, Flea and Geddy Lee. There’s no real compositions here, only a showcase of Carlos’ talent as one of music unsung bass heroes. He’d make a welcomed addition to any studio or touring band that required talent. Other than that this isn’t a cd that will get many repeat listens. Maybe on occasion a quick listen.
