Apres Un Reve : Gary Karr and Harmon Lewis


Gary Karr, acclaimed as »the world’s leading solo bassist« (Time magazine), is, in fact, the first solo doublebassist in history to make that pursuit a full-time career. It is a career that adds new lustre to his already lustrous 1611 Amati doublebass which was given to him by the widow of Serge Koussevitzky.
