I know this is a bass guitar forum, but please let me tell you guys about my Baby, (she's some kinda wonderfull)! I have been using my Azola Vintage Baby Bass at work in the Jazz Big Band and the Small Jazz Combo lately, and let me tell you. This bass smokes. I have been playing upright almost as long as I have been playing electric. The upright was even my major in college yada yada yada. But I have allways struggled to play my upright as smoothly as my electric and was never really able to creat those Paul Chambers like lines like I wanted to. Well, that is starting to change, and it is mostly because of this instrument. The Vintage Baby Bass by Steve Azola plays so well and has such a consistant tone that the challange of creating smooth lines and hearing your self is almost completely removed for me. We are starting the Latin Jazz Combo back up next month, and guess what bass I am bringing.
