"Stupid Bass History" is back, but with a bit more research and collaboration. Thanks to all the folks who helped me with this video!

With Jason Heath · San Francisco, CA

Thanks to the bassists that took the time to chat with me for this video:

  • John Van Lierop – Principal Bass in the Sinfonia Rotterdam and frequent guest principal bass in many European orchestras
  • Thomas Fiorini – double bassist in the Brussels Philharmonic
  • Aaron Olguin – Principal Bass in Norway’s Trondheim Symphony
  • Cory Palmer – Principal Bass in the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra
