On June 3rd & 4th, I participated in“The Bass Club of Georgia’s” annual bass workshop/master class/performance at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. It was a wonderful two days of bass related workshops and performances for the Double & Electric Bass. Their was an incredible line-up of artists that included Richard Davis, Donald Palma, Mark Bernat, Doug Sommer, David Goodwin, Todd Markey, James Barket and many other talented performers and instructors. My role was to work with the electric bassist‘s.
It was a true honor to have shared the stage and participated with many of the notable players listed above. Kudos to Mark Bernat and David Goodwin for pulling this off and for inviting me to be apart of the 2007 Bass Club, I believe a great time was had by all.
Until next post…peace

On the jazz side of the street, three promising students were recently named winners of $1,000 awards from the Milt J. Hinton Scholarship fund: Joe Martin, Joseph Moore, and Nathan Peck. Martin is a student at William Paterson College; Moore is hittin the books at Memphis State University; and Peck, a 16-year old from West Virginia, is planning to pursue private instruction. The judges were Milt Hinton himself (of course) and noted jazz bassists Jay Leonhart and Charnett Moffett. The winners were chosen on the basis of their performances, their background, and an assessement of the potential benefits of private instruction in furthering their musical development.
