Thought I'd post this here as it will be of interest to some. Village Vanguard stream. Please note that times indicated are New York City. 

 

FRIDAY + SATURDAY: KENNY BARRON TRIO

Kenny Barron returns to the Vanguard stage this Friday and Saturday at 9 PM EDT; accompanying him will be Kiyoshi Kitagawa on bass and Johnathan Blake on drums. Named “one of the top jazz pianists in the world” by the Los Angeles Times, Kenny is a master in performance and composition who draws from mainstream jazz piano traditions, yet uses bebop as the root. 

Each show lasts approximately 75 minutes; tickets are $10. Each performance will be available for purchase on-demand shortly after the set ends.

Contrabass = double bass. Is that what you were asking about?

Yup - but isn’t a double bass the giant violin the bass guitar aims to replicate?

 

Doesn’t “contrabass” translate to “anti-bass” - as in a soprano? That’s the Latin anyway...

Kind of, the double bass is the largest and lowest tuned stringed acoustic instrument. Bass guitar is just that, a bass version of a guitar playing in the same register as a double bass depending on how it's tuned of course. Contrabass is another common name for double bass, but it can refer to other instruments working in the same register. It's all a bit grey man. Yup

So where does the octobass fall in... and why does the ‘anti bass’ actually go lower?
