I’m heading out the door right now to interview double bassist Virginia Dixon. Folks unfamiliar with this well-known Suzuki double bass pedagogue should check out Stan Haskin’s excellent series about her work with young bassists. This should prove to be a very interesting interview and a valuable addition to the virtual library of content being created for the Contrabass Conversations project.
I have been doing an interview nearly every day over the past week, and my vat of unpublished bass content is bursting at the seams, so expect a steady diet of new and interesting double bass interviews, performances, and videos in the coming days, as well as some new crazy gig stories from your truly.
I’ve had some very weird gigs recently….that’s always a sure sign that it’s time to sit down with the laptop, coffee in hand, and begin pounding out some new material.
