What do you look for in bass auditions?

    Hey everyone.

    I'm starting up a new jazz vocal ensemble, with 5 voices and upright bass. I'm a singer, voice teacher, pianist, etc. and I'm having no trouble auditioning singers. However, I know very little about the bass. You can assume I have sufficient knowledge about broader musical issues, but assume total ignorance of anything specific to your instrument. I will need both bowing and plucked techniques for the group.

    What should I be looking for in auditions for a bass player?

    Thank you very much for your help! :help:
