Coltrane may never have had this in mind when he composed Giant Steps, but according to Hadrien Feraud and Federico Malaman there is no song that can not be turned into a ‘double bass’ performance!
We caught the two low end virtuous bass players at the recent NAMM show, just jamming out. They make it look pretty easy, but as you know if you have battled Giant Steps yourself, it’s not the easiest tune in the world improvising over. OK, back to the shed! 🙂
