Here’s the first episode and the first recording on my new fretless bass.  I wanted to create a project, that would give me a focus for practicing on the new bass.  The more I got into it, I also found other goals.  I started listening to the improvisations of vocalists, within the pop genre.  I wanted to use that listening to create a style of improvising that was pop, without a heavy jazz influence.  At the same time, playing bass meant the tune should have a classic bass line.  It became obvious that Stand By Me would solve all my needs.

I hope you enjoy it.
