We will be featuring an interview with International Society of Bassists president and Rowan University professor of jazz studies Douglas Mapp on Monday’s Contrabass Conversations episode. We had an interesting conversation on a variety of topics and really dug into life as an active freelancer. I think that this will be a particularly helpful conversation for bassists in the early stages of their career as an example of all the options out there for bassists outside of a full-time orchestra job.
Rowan University has done some cool faculty profile videos for YouTube. Check out this profile of Douglas, and stay tuned for our conversation next week!
