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 Conly, Moppa Elliott of Mostly Other People Do the Killing, Antoine Berjeaut, Robert Landfermann, Hubert Dupont, Krzysztof Pabian of the Chicago Edge Ensemble , and Bradley Jones with Jamie Saft . And a cat named Jimmy Garrison.
