This is a video of a section of my recital yesterday for the Silk Music Camp in Lisle, Illinois. I am doing a demonstration with the bass, and the first minute or so features me explaining some fundamentals of the bass. I’m basically improvising this demonstration as I go–I wasn’t sure of exactly what I wanted to play until I got up there. The last few minutes feature me performing “Ode D’Espagne” for the students–one of my old warhorses. Check out our Contrabass Conversations Rabbath episodes for more information on this great performer and composer, and stay tuned for more footage from this demonstration soon!
