    This is Sonny Stitt's solo on After You've Gone, from Stitt's Bits. It's a serious uptempo bebop tour de force, and I do my best to scamper a long with the master.

    I'll post a better one in a few days once I don't have to read it anymore and can secure a non-iphone recording device.

    Enjoy!

    Really great work as a sight-reading !
    You really have an amazing sense of tempo and a really strong intonation. It's sad (for us, bassists/viewers) that we don't clearly see your astonishing German bow playing.
    Anw, really good job, waiting for the final 'cleaner' version to be finally stunned ... ;)
    Good music and good bass to you,
    Mathieu.

    Thanks Mathieu! I'll post the better video as soon as I work it all out, I'll be sure to include a clear view of the bowing.

    Best,

    Alex

    Really great work!

    I'd love to hear you improvising with the bow. Do you have any recordings out?

    Thanks man! No recordings out as a leader or that feature anything like this, I have a lot more practicing to do!

    Best,
