Read "Running The Bas(s)es" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

In baseball parlance, “touch 'em all" refers to hitting a four-bagger, a home run. In this week's episode, we try to “touch" a whole bunch of wonderful contemporary bassists. The following would make up a pretty darn good all-star team of “bass" runners: John Hébert with Marty Ehrlich, Joshua Abrams, Drew Gress in Free Country, Sean ...
