Early on in this recording, I found myself thinking, “It’s amazing that he can play this, but why bother? A bass (especially an acoustic double bass) rarely makes a great solo instrument. But as the piece built, it really worked – a fine bass solo and a superb example of a jazz riff on an old classic!
