The Jazz Bass Book Book Review:

(Book). More than a player's manual, this book portrays jazz bass as a vital element of 20th century American music. Citing examples from key recordings in the jazz canon, the book defines the essence of the musical contributions made by more than 70 important jazz bassists, including Ray Brown, Eddie Gomez, Charles Mingus, Milt Hinton and many others. Bassists get expert guidance on mastering proper technique, practice methods and improvisation, plus new insight into the theoretical and conceptual aspects of jazz. The companion audio featuring bass plus rhythm section allows readers to hear technical examples from the book, presented in slow and fast versions. It also offers play-along tracks of typical chord progressions and song forms.

The Paganini of the Double Bass Book Review:

The achievements of Giovanni Bottesini (1821-1889) as a solo performer on the double bass tower above those of any other player before or since. In fact it's hard to think of any other field of human endeavour where one person has gone so far beyond everybody else. For nearly fifty years he astonished and delighted audiences on four continents. This new biography The Paganini of the Double Bass: Bottesini in Britain tells the complete life story of this remarkable man. He visited Britain over twenty times and performed in around 800 concerts including thirteen lengthy national tours. His many appearances in London throughout the Victorian era took place in a changing musical scene, as rival opera companies went to war, and concert promoters experimented with different ways of presenting music to the public. Bottesini, almost uniquely, was an outstanding success at the most serious philharmonic concerts and the rowdiest popular events. He was particularly associated with the Proms. He appeared over 200 times between 1851 and 1887, and even shared conducting duties with Johann Strauss II for the 1867 season, but he did not quite live long enough to see the era of Henry Wood. Although this book covers Bottesini's career in Britain in most detail, it describes his entire life: how his company in Havana raised the standards of opera in America in the late 1840s how he had major conducting positions in Mexico, Paris, Barcelona, Cairo and Buenos Aires the story behind how he came to conduct the world premiere of Aida how the operas he composed met with success but never became established in the repertoire his pioneering role in introducing purely instrumental music to Italy how his constant gambling forced him to keep going back on the road with his double bass his relationships with Verdi, Rossini and the powerful publishing house of Ricordi his two wives, hardly mentioned in any previous study The inclusion of around 20 letters to his closest friend, most of them not in any previous book about Bottesini, allows us to see the great double bass player's life from his own perspective -- his domestic quarrels, his financial pressures and his professional rivalries. 280 pages Available from Amazon Based on almost 10000 references in contemporary periodicals, mainly in the UK, but also Italy, Germany, France, USA, Cuba, Russia, Hungary Many inaccurate dates and places from previous studies have been corrected All UK appearances listed Three major interviews with Bottesini from UK newspapers Over 70 contemporary reviews 27 pictures Many adverts and documents from the era The first ever chronological listing of his music for double bass sheds light on the development of his techniques Detailed index of all people, places and works mentioned

Dirt Simple Upright Bass Book Review:

Although designed for newcomers to the upright bass and bluegrass music in general, this unique approach to creating basslines has something for everyone! The first half focuses on bass-playing essentials, giving the reader a solid technical footing with the instrument. Then, using his own baritone voice and the classic bluegrass song, “Going Down the Road Feeling Bad,” author Nate Sabat reveals his creative process in crafting effective basslines from the song’s melody and chord progression. The second half focuses on bass playing within the specific context of complementing bluegrass vocals. Well beyond what you might expect from an introductory method, Nate tastefully guides the reader by presenting multiple composed bassline options for each of five well-known bluegrass songs: Rabbit in the Log, Don’t this Road Look Rough and Rocky?, Long Journey Home, I Am a Pilgrim, and Angel Band. Nate’s warm, pitch-perfect vocals can be heard on virtually every track, giving this method an undeniable musicality. A lightly accompanied vocal track with no bass is also provided, so you can be the sole upright or electric bassist in the band. You’ll not only want to back Nate up—but sing harmony with him too! The impulse to sing can’t help but influence your bass playing in a natural and positive way. Nate provides notated versions of the eight major scales most commonly used in bluegrass. Once you get them under your fingers, you’ll soon be able to play along with the book’s 50 companion online recordings. With its simple harmonic palette and repetitive nature, bluegrass music offers bassists the perfect opportunity to become musically literate. If you’ve hesitated to learn to read music, this is the time and place to eliminate that drawback. Working through these 46 pages will provide the tools and confidence needed to create your own engaging and musical basslines and hopefully, you’ll be inspired to continue your bluegrass bass journey for years to come. Includes access to online audio.

The Three String Double Bass by Christopher Boyder Book Review:

So finally here it is! A definitive handbook to ALL your questions about rare (gut/silk) three-string double basses. Where do they come from? Who made them? Who played them? How much are they worth? Should you go ahead and restore? How should you play one? What is their relevance in today's modern age?The gut three-string double bass first appeared in the late 18th century.They were distinctly different to other "bass" role instruments at their time. The size dimensions of the three-string instrument resembled what appears in the modern day full size 3⁄4 and 4/4 orchestral instruments. This book will give descriptive information about makers of the three-string double bass. It will provide an explanation regarding its pivotal role in promoting and establishing the standardized orchestral double bass and it will discuss the soloists, repertoire and composers of the instrument.The gut three-string double bass is usually considered to be a rare piece of antiquity, the original instrument that solo double bassists performed on. It is henceforth suggested that these pioneering soloists were responsible in creating the turning point for the resemblance of what we have come to see and hear in the modern double basses. Finally, this book will provide advice on treatises and methods for Baroque/Classical ensemble and string performers regarding correct period performance practice and technique. A composer's influences regarding period sonorities will be briefly mentioned.The gut three-string double bass had an extremely brief circulation in history! This book can also be seen as an introduction and an equally rare historical description of one of the "last rare relicts" of an instrument that may have otherwise "sneaked" its way past historical records completely...
