New York, NY, March 2, 2009 -- Bassist Steve Haines directs the Miles Davis Program in Jazz Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. With that responsibility comes many things including the future of young people dedicating their lives to music. Haines has been involved with some other activities as well besides his educational obligations at the University. The 2007 recording of his second release, Stickdaboom, is set to make its debut on March 10, 2009 on the Zoho Records imprint. The album was recorded at Clinton Studios, New York City, November 6 & 7, 2007 and engineered, mixed, then mastered by Rob “Wacko" Hunter and produced by Haines.

Stickdaboom features the only surviving member of the Miles Davis Quintet, drummer Jimmy Cobb. Haines and his impeccable double bass playing form a well matched rhythm section with the legendary Cobb, and arguably one of the best one-two punch jazz sections today still actively recording.

This past year, Haines he has either played or recorded with jazz luminaries such as Branford Marsalis, Wycliffe Gordon, Peter Erskine, Jimmy Cobb, Joe Chambers, and many others. His first album as a leader The Steve Haines Quintet: Beginner's Mind received international critical acclaim and was hailed by All About Jazz as “one of the best inside/outside records of the year.” He has recently returned to North Carolina from living in New York City to continue his teaching at the University.

Wycliffe Gordon commented on Stickdaboom stating “Haines is amongst the few of the new breed that will ride the glory train of creating music, making them new standards.”

More information regarding the Stickdaboom CD, biographical info, pictures, and more are available on the Steve Haines website.
