Henry Fraser (b.1991) is a bassist and composer based in Brooklyn, NY. Grounded by an empiric practice of improvisation and ravenous listening, Henry’s work oscillates around established genres of music. This includes exhaustive solo double bass improvisations and the myriad, yet haunting, songs of The Full Salon. Henry has toured throughout the US, Europe, and South America, collaborating with Anthony Coleman, Chris Pitsiokos, Brandon Seabrook, Sam Weinberg, Charmaine Lee, Carlo Costa, Ryan Power, Axel Dörner, Mike Pride, Weasel Walter, Tony Malaby, Mat Maneri, Francisco Mela, Joe Morris, and many others.

“What ties “Buzzed” together is Fraser’s willingness to follow an idea wherever it leads, charting a path of intriguing leaps and sneaky side-steps” Marc Masters, Bandcamp Daily

“as though three virtuosos at an elite music school had secretly gathered in a practice room late at night to explore their most outré ideas” Hank Shteamer on the Brandon Seabrook Trio, Rolling Stone
