I’m convinced that Michael Manring’s brain works differently than everyone else’s. His ideas are always so unique and his execution of them are jaw-dropping.
Back in 1991, Manring was featured on the Spanish television program Musica NA to talk about his playing and compositions. This clip starts out with the bassist explaining his thought process on playing two basses at once before he demonstrates in spectacular fashion.
Manring then talks about his recording process and finishes the video with his song “Welcoming” set to a scenic drive.
