I REMEMBER YOU (Inner Circle Music) **** Canadian-bred John Menegon is in the line of George Mraz and Michael Moore; a harmonically sophisticated bassist with technical facility who swings hard when it’s called for. Kirk Silsbee, Downbeat 

SOUL ADVICE: This is a brilliant release full of rich composition and arrangement …when you have a strong well-rounded bassist like John Menegon composing, arranging, and laying down the serious low-end vibes, the music naturally flows out and around and back again seeking its root. John Trent, Chronogram

I REMEMBER YOU (Inner Circle Music 2014)

JOHN MENEGON (bass), TINEKE POSTMA (alto, soprano sax), FRANK KIMBROUGH (piano), MATT WILSON (drums), TERI ROIGER (voice).

I REMEMBER YOU is a dedication to the late, great musicians David "Fathead" Newman and Dewey Redman, with whom I had a working relationship for over fifteen years. Included on the CD are compositions dedicated to drummer Paul Motian, pianist/vocalist Ray Charles and the great Brazilian vocalist Gal Costa, All these musicians have greatly influenced and shaped my musical life as a creative artist.
