|Label:||Hot Wire Records|
|Description:||Hot Wire Records came to life in 1989 as an outlet for label owner Bert Gerechtīs bassic fantasies. BASS-TALK (1989) was the first compilation album featuring the music of bass players.
Hot Wire Records has since produced some fourty-plus albums in various genres: bass solo albums (Percy Jones, Carol Kaye, Jimmy Earl, Jorge Degas), guitar albums (Joe Pass, JazzSick, Bargain Hunters), Ethno-Fusion (Materia), Acid Jazz (Jon Hammond, Frootloop), hipīn funk-jazz (Velvet Colors) and Easy Listening (Carol K. & the Hitmen). The side label "Space Cadet Records" concentrates more on electronic music styles with a jazzy influence. Most titles are out of print and have become sought-after collectors items.
In 1999, Bert Gerecht decided to stop making records and to rather manufacture Hot Wire Bass Guitars due to shrinking record sales, but will continue to produce the Bass-Talk series with extraordinary bass-heavy material. The latest release (Jan 2004) is BASS-TALK 8: a bass bolero, a stunning production by Viennaīs Harald Weinkum, featuring Bass Icons Gary Willis, Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Jimmy Haslip, Rocco Prestia, Marco Mendoza, Abraham Laboriel, Alain Caron, Alexis Skljarevski, Dave Carpenter, Ric Fierabracci, James Genus, Jimmy Earl, Bill Dickens - all on the same album! Also it features the last recording of saxophonist Bob Berg.|
