Check out Mark here:
I hate to break it to you, but he's not that speacial.
Mabye you should post in the Double Bass forum. And listen to people like Ray Brown, Charles Mingus, Ron Carter, Stanley Clarke, Jimmy Blanton, and others.
Brian bromberg is my favorite upright player, at least when it comes to chops and virtuosity.
Ray brown is may favorite in general.
My guess is you most likely enjoyed breaking it to me.......
I would agree he's not Ray Brown or Mingus...but how many guys are?
Let me re-phrase, he's one of my favorite bass players to play with. He always grooves his ass off, plays intersting solos and always hear's the right changes. This was just a simple blues gig, but he is just as rock solid when the changes are flying by in jazz setting too.
This is off-topic, but one of my favorite upright albums is Bruce Cockburn's "The Charity Of Night". Rob Wasserman plays all the way through and he sounds incrediblw with Cockburn's music. Definitely worth buying "sight unseen".
Christain McBride is definatley my favorite upright player. I was just listening to Diana Krall's Love Scenes last night and he just blows me away.
Want bad double bass players?
Dave Holland, Ray Brown, Paul Chambers, Ron Carter, [Anders Jormin, Lars Daniellson] (<--Swedish superbassists check em out), George Mraz, NHOP, Rufus reid, Peter Washington, Ira coleman, Chris Mcbride, Doug Watkins, Jimmy Blanton, Mingus, Stanley Clarke, Richard Davis, Oscar Pettiford, Scott lafaro, Slam stewart....
There's a good start :
Check out bassist Charnett Moffett's excellent upright playing on the new Kenny Garrett Album "Standard of Language" he smokes!!!! The album was co-produced by Marcus Miller
Miroslav Vitous is(was) criminally underappreciated as a virtuosic upright player. Don't forget to check him out if you haven't already.
Thanks, I already have the Jon Rainey Trio CD.
how can we forget Edger Meyer?
total pimp on the upright.
