Edgar Meyer plays the bass the way Yo Yo Ma plays the cello. It is just amazing to hear him make this deep voiced instrument sing. I have casually joked that "once I master the cello, I plan on learning to play the double bass!" I joked about it, but there is something deep inside me that likes the bass.
As I listen to this CD I am so impressed with the way that Meyer can perform such a range of music. Typically, you hear double bass in an orchestra or in a Jazz quartet or quintet. He plays it like it was a solo instrument -- just amazing.
