    When it comes to jazz, I am starting to learn to apreciate this genre, but my favorite instrument in jazz is the trumpet, and love to hear Dizzy play it.

    What I would like to know is that in terms of technical difficulty, how hard is it to play this song in the double bass: They seem good musicians, but it can't compare to the original, they even play it slower.

    Omfg... New question: how do they memorize the entire song? It's so insane I can't even put it in words..
     
  5. I agree. Sounds pretty hard too.
    But the **** eating grins and stress-free body language may tell a different story. So does Niels' T-shirt.

    Lots of listening, lots of practice.
