👽🍹 An essential for bass players or bass enthusiasts. Very original albeit challenging works; I've never heard the double bass sound like it does on this album (nor could I have imagined). You will either love or hate these probably polarizing pieces. Favorite track: Spirale.
A Catena 01:35
Fioritura 05:10
Spirale 01:47
Sul Viaggio 04:05
