  1. This is Sonny Stitt's solo on After You've Gone, from Stitt's Bits. It's a serious uptempo bebop tour de force, and I do my best to scamper a long with the master.

    I'll post a better one in a few days once I don't have to read it anymore and can secure a non-iphone recording device.


  2. Really great work as a sight-reading !
    You really have an amazing sense of tempo and a really strong intonation. It's sad (for us, bassists/viewers) that we don't clearly see your astonishing German bow playing.
    Anw, really good job, waiting for the final 'cleaner' version to be finally stunned ... ;)
    Good music and good bass to you,
  3. Thanks Mathieu! I'll post the better video as soon as I work it all out, I'll be sure to include a clear view of the bowing.

    Really great work!

    I'd love to hear you improvising with the bow. Do you have any recordings out?
  5. Congrats Alex ! Nice to see your bow, and thanks for reposting it !
    I wish you best luck in your career and wait for others astonishing covers!
    Good music and good bass,
