    I recently went to see this wild man play and am learning more about him and his master Fernando Grillo.

    Upon hearing both of these amazing players my view on the bass is completely shattered.

    I think in the US bass world these two are often ignored as modern evolutionists of our instrument.

    If you haven't heard these guys just command the instrument I can only suggest to get hip! :D

    You MUST find a copy the brilliant recording of Scodanibbio's epic solo piece "Voyage That Never Ends" (New Albion records). I was lucky to have witnessed a live performance of the piece in San Francisco a few years ago.

    I just saw him at stanford and he blew my f@#$%*g mind. I will definitely pick up this piece thanks.
  4. I met him twice and he's maybe the most
    impressive bassist I ever heard.

    His recording of Julio Estrada's music
    with Arditti Quartet is such an incredible
    string tone, like from another world.
    That score is just impossible to read,
    impossible to play.

    As for Fernando Grillo, I didn't like
    the Bruzdowicz concerto : the recording
    is very far from the score, which I don't
    find so interesting.

    But his own scores are fantastic study
    for us, like "Paperoles"; and I have a
    recording of a guitar piece by Scelsi
    which he adapted for solo DB, that's quite
