Bass is Beautiful

Feature

Saturday, September 17, 2005

It used to be in popular music that you'd feel the bass line more than hear it. Today's bass players have to balance their crucial supporting role with increasing duties as a soloist. Bill Leigh of Bass Player magazine and Victor Wooten, a virtuoso of the bass guitar, talk about what its like for a bass player to shed the background camouflage. Produced by Jonathan Mitchell.
