In addition to putting out new interviews on Contrabass Conversations, we are focusing on finding way to highlight this spectacular back catalog that we’ve built from eight years of audio interviews. One of the early gems of the show was our interview with Lawrence Hurst.
Back in the early days, I would split up these interviews into multiple parts. I think that I was worried that I wouldn’t have enough content to put out on a weekly basis if I didn’t do that. These days, I think that it makes more sense to just put the whole interview out in one episode regardless of length. Therefore, this (and future relaunched archived content) will all be on one episode, which will make for more streamlined consumption. I also took the opportunity to clean up the audio, so listening should be a very nice experience. It will launch Monday morning, and I think you’ll really enjoy it.
