Gary Karr performs with Harmon Lewis on piano and pipe organ for a handful of classical pieces by Bach, Wilder, Koussevitzky, and others. The "Kol Nidrei" was the musical impetus that put Karr on the path toward a solo career. He first performed this music in a synagogue at the age of eleven and still considers it his most personal piece. 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. Contains 7 pieces of music on 180 gram vinyl mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analogue tapes & pressed at Pallas in Germany!
