I got away yesterday to make a few hours of the ISB convention. WOW!!! All those double bass' in three rooms!!! Really nice stuff and lots of playing going on as well. As for performance' I have only made two so far. First was the Bill Mays & Friends.., Very hot stuff. I think Rufus was awesome as well as all of them but I think Kristin Korb, Robert Hurst And Tom Knific just smoked. That Tom is and was last night a monster. Talk bout getting inspired. Now for the other concert was my favorite Jeff Bradetich!!! Holy Smoke this guy was on fire. He performed Contrajeando, Andante from Cello Sonata, Op.19 and a Frank Proto I think it was Sonata 49?? I could be wrong. Jeff and his wife with Frank Proto all took bows. I will go back for Friday and Saturday for the rest of it. This is the first ISB I have ever been to and hopefully not the last. Well thats my two cents.
