- having a deep pitch
1990 November 9, Neil Tesser, “Cassandra Wilson”, in Chicago Reader:
- Describing Wilson's rich, bottomy contralto in musical terms doesn't quite work.
2000 October 20, Monica Kendrick, “Spot Check”, in Chicago Reader:
- But though there's definitely power in the bottomy drumming of Angela Horton--whose setup includes a timpani--on their eponymously titled debut (on Blue Mountain's Black Dog label), the Satyrs usually choose not to, favoring eerie southern-gothic balladry with a Floydian psychedelic tinge and the occasional Middle Eastern twinge.
2003 November 21, Peter Margasak, “Full-Blown Trio”, in Chicago Reader:
- Burrell is at his fiery best, attacking bottomy chords with sledgehammer power--there's not a ragtime riff in sight.
