Shores uses 5, 6, and 7 string basses, as well as a fretless, so the voices are many, the moods diverse, always leading exactly where Shores wants you to go.
...
When Shores calls the thunder, he drops those bombs right down on top of your head.
...
Tynet brings things to a close with some nice melodic bass, very handily played by Shores.
...
The keyboards and drums are definitely skillfully handled and well featured, but Shores' keeps the bass voices well heard and in command; he reminds us that this melody IS the thunder.

Interview of Russell K Shores
...
Needless to say when we discovered LS 5, the latest album from Russell K. Shores, all it took was one listen to make me a fan! The New York native, now Austin, Texas resident, has an impressive resume... dubbed Thunder Baby by his peers for his thunderous grooves, Russell began paying bass at the age of 12... since he has earn a degree in music and has shared the stage with many greats including the legendary Diana Ross. His soulful new album, LS 5 is packed with rich melodies and deep grooves and thankfully, plenty of Russell's expressive electric bass guitar!
...
O's Notes: Russell K. Shores brings his bass to center stage owning the melodies on all seven tracks.
...
A collection of tasteful, jazzy alternative recordings, Russell jumped in with both feet on this one, and most of all, with some slamming finger & thump action!! I must say that for a debut CD, this artist is running neck and neck with many of the fabulous veterans of our music industry!
Russell's renditions of "I Shot The Sheriff" and "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" have his own luscious vibe and creativity. His originals, such as LS 5 " and "Tynet," have their own sweet funky flavor but the vibe still shouts out ALL THAT JAZZ! I must say that at the root of Russell's music, cover tunes as well as originals, his bottom-end-flow is as grand as Niagara Falls! Keep keeping on, Russell, because there ain't no stopping you now!

"Russell K. Shores "LS - 5"
Russell has been threatening to release upon on us an Album of his tunes and he's made good on his promise. A richly orchestrated 7 song CD that is nothing short of beautiful.
First let me say that Russell's playing is superbly eloquent, melodic and if there's a pocket he's got your back. I love his playing because it is quintessential: Everything you need as a solid, expressive and artistic player can be heard in his playing. There's no windfall of notes and battery of chops. Just tasteful playing.
...
Thank you Russell for making good on your promise." But only to that degree. There's no need to make up false praise. Russell is a formidable bassist who yields to the song

His name is Russell K. Shores.

"Russell K Shores learned to play the bass when a friend pointed out he was only playing the first four strings on his electric guitar. This is how natural-born bassists are discovered!
