Michael Manring Playing Two Basses at Once

2. Michael Manring Playing Two Basses at Once

I’m convinced Michael Manring’s brain works differently than everyone else’s. In 1991, Manring was featured on a TV program about his playing and compositions. In this clip, he explains his thought process on playing two basses at once before he demonstrates in spectacular fashion…

Ehud Ettun Trio: Funk

10. Ehud Ettun Trio: Funk

I like hearing funky upright bass, and Ehud Ettun brings a jazz flavor to it on this song aptly entitled “Funk”. Ettun is joined by Daniel Schwarzwald, who wrote the tune, on piano and Nathan Blankett on drums. Check the bass solo at 4:15…
