I had a chance to sit down with Butler University double bass professor and noted soloist and clinician David Murray recently for an extremely fun and interesting interview. David and I covered all sorts of topics, including lessons with Gary Karr (who was actually David’s first bass teacher–pretty good first bass teacher, right?), David’s longtime association with the International Society of Bassists, traveling with a bass, and many other topics.
If you know David, you probably have a good idea of how much fun this interview was to do! If you aren’t familiar with David, check out this video of him performing Jon Deak‘s B.B. Wolf–you’ll get a good idea of his great personality:
