Richard Ford turned from a successful career as a professional bass player (Joe Jackson, Bill Nelson) to that of an award winning music producer and music editor for feature films.
Over the the past 20 years he’s worked with some of Hollywood’s great filmmakers on landmark films. But the itch to get the basses out of the closet and create some music of his own has persisted throughout. Basso Profondissimo is a personal, unashamedly self-indulgent project.
A small collection of music, designed on bass, and (mostly) played on bass.
“…as a belated personal statement after two decades of studio work it is warm, inviting and persuasive evidence of a composer/player who has that ability to turn sound into something more visceral and visual.”
Elsewhere, NZ
"Outstanding! Richard has great ideas. His Basso Profondissimo shows a keen feel for mood, and sharp awareness of nuance.”

"This rendition of 'Malibu' took the groove for a long ride in a fresh new vehicle and there's room for everyone.”
