I recently joined a Jazz/Big Band and I'm learning a lot of new concepts & ideas as I go along. One of the assigned tunes is A Pair of Aces of Sammy Nestico with SWR Big Band. I realize this piece is primarily a feature for the soloists, but the Bassist is flying too! I just wanted to know the name of my new bass hero. Here is a YouTube video as a reference for the song I must learn. The song begins at a slow pace, but the tempo picks up at 2:11 I’m completely prepared for someone to tell me the song really isn’t that fast. Since I was 16, I only played rock/metal. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and boy, did I jump into the deep end. I have a ton of work to do. I accept this challenge and I’m not backing down. Sorry, I'm only playing Bass Guitar presently. If fortune should smile upon me at some point in the future, I would love to embark on owning, learning and playing the double bass.
