Joel Quarrington, Dave Young and The Two Bass Hit

It’s much more than the bassline. From Schumann and Bach to jazz standard "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square," Joel Quarrington, one of the world’s foremost bassists, puts the double bass’s best foot forward alongside fellow bassist, Dave Young, and pianist, John Novacek.

“The years of friendship between these two musicians have led inevitably to this performance - playing music never originally intended to be performed on double basses.  After hearing this concert, you’ll be convinced its the only way.” - Mark Fewer
