Jeremy Kurtz’s cd, “Sonatas and Meditations” documents new pieces that have recently been added to the ever expanding bass repertoire. The two sonatas that Mr. Kurtz presents to us are David Anderson’s 1st, “Sonata for Double Bass and Piano”, with the second being, “Sonata in D Major” by Boismortier. The meditations part of this recording comes from Luis Prado’s, “Three Meditations for Double Bass and Piano”. A note of interest: If you pause the beginning of the first track and then rewind until after the display shows -9 minutes and five seconds you will be able to access a hidden track, “Outtakes from a Work in Progress”. Proceeds from sales of this CD through the ISB Store benefit the International Society of Bassists.
