Dave Carpenter and his bass
The BEBOP album is pure straight-ahead jazz with REAL acoustic bass played by
renowned bass specialist Dave Carpenter.
We are all saddened by the news of his untimely
death only 48 years old, June 24, 2008.
So how many bassists play upright and electric bass extremely well like each is the
main ax? Dave was one of only a few in any era. Man, he played his ass off and
was a great guy!!! - Jay
