Impressive and very good indeed! He rubbed shoulders with Yoyo Ma - wow! Thanks for sharing Robertrojarosguitar wrote: ↑Tue May 14, 2019 12:41 pmThe 6 string cello (indeed) is played by Muneer B Fennell, one of the first jazz cellists ever and the one who pushed the frontiers most IMHO.
If you look him up in the internet you will find that he has played with so many great musicians. He has a full classical cello education (he was in the same competition in which Yoyoma won the first prize) but changed over to Jazz very early and very consequently. I have the great honor, luck and pleasure to be able to work with him since many many years (you will find early traces of our collaboration are 8 years old, but by that time we already had worked together several years...)
Thanks everybody for your interest. It seems like some people like to go into one thing very deep and other people maybe don't go that deep but have more broader inclinations. For me it's not even a conscious choice, it just so happens that I like all these sounds and kind of spiral through all these instruments. I would never pretend to be a master of any of them, but still I can derive a lot of pleasure from doing all that
Very few real masters would

Bream certainly had some, didn't he?
