Think you know something about bass?

That's bass as in viol, not as in fish.

Reynaud Garcia-Fons is arguably world's-best, but if you doubt it (or even if you don't), get your hands/eyes/ears on Arcoluz, his 2005 Enja release (a trio, with Kiko Ruiz playing guitar and Negrito Trasante doing percussion). It comes with a DVD that's a revelation, since you get to see how he gets those sounds out of a bass. The DVD is a marvel of camera work and editing. Amazon offers it, and it's not cheap. But it's really really worth it. Really.
