Accomplished composer and innovative bassist, Passion Star Records artist Edo Castro has a gift that transforms the sound of unique multi-stringed basses into a palate from which intricate compositions are drawn. Castro lures the listener to embark on an amazing and stirring journey. He has been described as “very expressive – from ethereal to grooving – great writing and playing;” and his fan base spans the globe. In the last 15 years, Castro has contributed to over 20 albums including two solo efforts released to wide acclaim: Edo (2001) and Phoenix (2006), a natural atmospheric expansion and evolutionary outgrowth of his debut release.
Castro frequently finds himself sought after to perform and record with local Bay Area musicians, among them Ian Doogle, Deborah Winters, Jill Knight, Eva Jay Fortune, Paul Van Wageningen, Caroline Aiken, Dan Zinn, Michael La Macchia, Armando Peraza, Caren Armstrong, Percy Howard, Mike Molenda, Deborah Pardes, David Sobel, Stu Hamm, Lorn Leber, George Brooks, etc. During his tenure in Chicago he also had the pleasure of performing with David Amram, Mark Walker, Hassan Kahn, Pete Cosey, Roy Haynes, Fareed Haque, David Onderdonk, Nick Kitsos, Ed Thigpen, Johnny Griffin, Joe Sonnefeldt, Stu Greenspan, Bethany Pickens and Jim Trompeter. Castro once sat in on a set with percussion legend Roy Haynes who later said “When you’re in town, give me a call.”
Edo has recently worked and collaborated with Michael Manring,Percy Jones, David Friesen, Al Caldwell, Steve Erquiaga, Chris Cardonne and Grammy award winning Mark Isham on his latest CD entitled "Sacred Graffiti."
Edo uses his Shuttle 9.0 in a variety of venues
