“Mr. Palombi is to be praised for the superb work he has done in presenting these transcriptions…”
Bassist Marc Johnson

“This book is something ever bassist should look over and learn from one of the best bass soloist ever. Not since the Bach cello suites have I found something that is so overwhelmingly challenging and so very musical. These solos are a great tool for bassist to learn how to read like a saxophonist and understand how to stretch out and play on the upper extensions of the harmony. I highly recommend this book!”
Bassist Steve LaSpina

“Well, I sat on the couch last night with my ipod and the LaFaro book, and after listening and reading, I have only one question – what planet are you REALLY from? That’s just an unbelievable accomplishment all the way around.”
Bassist and tenor saxophonist Mike Karn

 

Playing LaFaro’s Bass

Here are a two videos of me playing Scott’s solo on Waltz for Debby and Gloria’s Step using LaFaro’s actual 1825 Abraham Prescott bass. You can see more videos of me playing Scott’s bass on My YouTube Page!
