We’ll hit our 100th episode of Contrabass Conversations in the next few weeks–a significant achievement for any podcast! It’s hard to believe that I’ve interviewed, recorded, edited, and published nearly 100 of these buggers–it seems like I just got this podcast going recently, but the two year anniversary is fast approaching.
I decided to do a a retrospective of all the guests I’ve featured in interviews over the past couple of years. It’s titled ‘Origins’ and has prominent bass players answering my traditional first questions: how did you get started as a musician, and what drew you to the bass?
It’s fascinating to hear the likes of Lawrence Hurst, François Rabbath, and Guy Tuneh share their early attraction to the instrument and to learn about the diversity of backgrounds that these great artists have had. I hope you check it out!
