Welcome

There’s a lot going on these days. I’ve stopped writing for Bass Player Magazine—read all about it here.

 

  • My solo version of the beautiful ballad, “Stardust” — with a big tip of my hat to Oscar Pettiford.

 

  • Here’s a new video from the WDR Big Band — a bass feature entitled “Sergio”!

 

 

  • Do you live in the Cologne area? Be sure to visit Steinway & Sons Koeln for our “Jazz & Talk” series. Here’s the lineup of great artists featured in the Fall 2018 season—Hubert Nuss & Götz Alsmann!

 

  • Here’s a new podcast from the great Jason Heath. Contrabass Conversations is a fantastic resource for bassists of every ilk. I had a fantastic time chatting with Jason about all sorts of things: The Jazz Bass Book, the WDR Big Band, my take on innovators and imitators, juggling…and more.

 

  • My new video bass course is out now at truefire.com. “The Upright Bass Handbook” is geared towards beginning double bassists, electric bassists who want to add the acoustic bass to their arsenal, and other instrumentalists who are looking for an overview of bass technique and basic jazz bass line construction.

 

 

 

  • And while you’re here, please take a minute to sign up for my newsletter. I’ll be sure and give you an update and just a bit of great information every once in awhile.
