I recently stumbled upon this interview that double bassist Peter Tambroni did with Martin Simpson. Martin has a website called Interviews with Overseas Bass Folk. It’s a great resource, and I just added it to my blogroll under “non-blog bass sites”.
Pete is a great double bass player and educator. He recently wrote a book titled An Introduction to Double Bass Playing, and he runs a great double bass resource website called MostlyBass.com. He has been a featured clinician many times at the Whitewater Winter Bassfest (which I used to run), and has been mentioned many times on this blog.
Pete is a fantastic teacher both in the classroom and as a double bass instructor. He has turned out some very accomplished students here in suburban Chicago, and it is always a pleasure to work with him.
