Solo Bass Project

Interesting pieces done live on a solo bass.

I started these recordings a while back, the plan was to write as other composers using techniques I don’t usually use.
The story: This was music from a bass player who was from Canada, now living in Brooklyn.
While these compositions were worked on for a while, they were all recorded on one afternoon – before a scheduled live performance later that night. The live performance never happened.

Bugle calls

I got an email this morning from military bugler Jari Villanueva. My version of “Taps” was wrong. Oops. That’s not good. I recorded a new correct version from the music he gave me.

And while I was doing bugle calls, I also recorded “First Call” as played by three trumpets.
It is pretty exciting, though not as clean as it if were performed by a soloist. I hope I got this one right! :-)
First Call
Yes, I know, the opening arpeggio should be triple tongued…

Jari Villanueva’s bugle calls can be found on the U.S. Army Band’s site. I think the recordings there are in the Public Domain… but I’m not certain.
