Steuart Liebig
Steuart Liebig   
Contrabassguitarist/composer Steuart Liebig has had a varied career in music. At the age of 19 he started a three-year stint playing rhythm guitar with soul-jazz pianist-singer Les McCann (playing on four albums). He quit Les’ band and returned to university, where he studied classical contrabass, music history and composition. Realizing that the life of a symphony bassist was not for him, he started a rock band (BLOC). During this period, Steuart also played and recorded with noted saxophonist/composer Julius Hemphill and members of the Los Angeles improvised music community. Concurrently, he did much self-study and writing in “classical” composition, resulting in 20 pieces, ranging from chamber music to symphonies. After BLOC, Steuart focused his energies on improvised music and composition, embarking on three more or less parallel lines of compositional investigation: 1) Improvising chamber groups: Quartetto Stig, Kammerstig, Stigtette and Minim; 2) Groups that revisit American blues and country music through the prism of “avant-garde” jazz: The Mentones and The Tee-Tot Quartet; 3) Jazz-based groups: The Seconda Prattica Quintet, the Meninas Quartet (two versions) and various trios

Steuart has also written music for solo contrabassguitar; written for large-scale groups incorporating electronics and acoustic instruments; and written and performed music incorporating computer music technology. He has performed and recorded with cutting-edge musicians like Nels Cline, Alex Cline, G.E. Stinson, Gregg Bendian, Michael Vatcher, Tom Varner, Mark Dresser, Julius Hemphill, The World Saxophone Quartet, Billy Childs, Dianne Reeves, etc. Steuart has 14 CDs under his own name, available on Nine Winds, Cryptogramophone, pfMENTUM, Cadence Jazz Records and Red Toucan.

Quote from Artist:
I have a few Genz-Benz bass amplifiers (theShuttle 3.0, the ShuttleMax 12.0 and the Streamliner 600) and here's what i love about them—besides sounding great, they're incredibly versatile: dual voltage, you can take them anywhere in the world and quickly change to a country's power; in addition to using them as a kickass bass amp, you can use them as a headphone amp, direct box or preamp. In my case, i do all of those, including using my Genz-Benz heads as bass preamps for recording to my laptop or when throwing down with a band that does laptop beats and sound processing straight into a mixer and p.a.

The new Streamliner 600 is really great because (as has been noted by more eloquent folks than me) the three-tube preamp really gives it a great three-dimensional sound—and in a package that's far lighter (and louder) and has more bass response than the old 70s tube amps that i was carrying around for some gigs.
