about

Anonymous is a menagerie of muse and a carefully crafted project that spanned more than two years. If Alex Bershadsky did wish to remain anonymous, the album is doing the opposite for both himself and the team of professionals behind the album! Alex Bershadsky has been “captured” as the musical mastermind behind Anonymous.

In a follow-up to his 2007 debut album, Junk, Bershadsky displays an astonishing amalgam of jazz, rock, fusion and pop within Anonymous. The album is a new pinnacle of achievement as Bershadsky tirelessly chases his own artistic goals and seemingly unlimited creative limits.

“In Anonymous, I tried to stay close to the sound I imagined,” says Bershadsky, as he describes the album’s evolution. The album reflects Alex’s years as a well-trained scholarly musician, as well as the creative exposure to various genres of music over decades. In addition, it has already gathered reviews from many top music magazines.

“The first single from the album, ‘Ma’oz Tzur’, is a bass tour de force, combining lyrical melodic flourishes, harmonics and high-register chordal playing, overdubbed with a charged fretless solo.” - Nick Wells, Editor, Bass Guitar Magazine.

“Alex Bershadsky is sure to secure himself a slot in the minds of bass lovers and players everywhere …” - Damian Erskine, Bass Musician Magazine.

"Israeli fretless jazz/fusion bass wizard ..." - Bryan Beller, Bass Player Magazine.

The sessions were recorded both at Ian Freitor’s The Playground Studios in New York, as well as at the esteemed Bennet Studios in Englewood, New Jersey. As well, the musicians on Anonymous were the crème de la crème. These included Ian Freitor on keyboards, Eugene Maslov on piano, and Shlomi Cohen on Saxophone. In addition, virtuosic skills of Eran Asias and Gal Gershovsky - on drums and percussion - and breathtaking trumpet performances via Justin Mullens.
