Ed Barker text interview from Ovation Press

I’ve been learning about the very cool Ovation Press recently, and I’ve got a lot of positive things to say about this outfit–wonderful editions of core repertoire from the best double bass performers and pedagogues in the business. Editors include Paul Ellison and Ed Barker! Highly recommended.

They also have an interview up with Ed Barker. Check it out… and check out our Contrabass Conversations interview with Ed (conducted by John Grillo) if you haven’t in the past.
