    This is the fattest upright sound I have heard from any bass player. He had that bow working too.
    Tight hot afro cuban band. Can anyone recommend CD's cause he have many. I'm sure my TalkBass brother have some favorite songs to recommend. Cachao is in a class of his own. He had that PA at Hollywood Bowl Boomin and I was on the back row, in the cheap seats:) I decided to get closer. That Double Bass was drawing me closer to the stage. When I got to the stage, His set was ending. But! I got a eye full of that shiney Double Bass. Now I want more. My bass guitar is not producing this sound. Now I want to go Double Bass.
