How many things can you do with a five-string bass and a human voice? If you're Dino DiNicolo the answer is an infinite amount. On the bass he runs the gamut from Jaco Pastorius-like harmonics to Victor Wooten-esque rhythmic slapping. As far as his voice goes, singing is merely the start. His beatboxing seems to include a full drum set. A host of other special effects seem to come from somewhere deep inside. And when he combines a bizarre vocal sound with an unusual bass pattern, the effect can be otherworldly. DiNicolo may look like a mild-mannered man, but he's really a one-man heavy-metal jazz band. www.dinodinicolo.com.
