Some days ago Gijs (aka “Fivestringer”), a friend of mine from Wikiloops recommended his favourite contemporary upright bass player, Brian Bromberg. And of course I had to listen, and yes, Gijs is right about Brian – the man is a real force. Listen to his Slow Burn song from his album Downright Upright (which is on my wishlist of course):
Wow. ToDo list: transcribe this, and play it on my fretless (I don’t have an upright bass).
Thanks for listening.
