Glenn Miller: Basso Profundo, Grammy winner, Not the Trombonist/Jazz Composer, Capable of shaking the ground with the power of his voice alone.
Growing up singing in choir, Glenn was relegated to support roles, unable to sing leads because his voice was simply too manly for the leads.
As he grew up and more people discovered the power of his voice, he quickly became an in demand Basso Profundo. His absolutely ridiculous range allowed him to sing notes most mere mortals can only dream of. In his 2015 Grammy winning recording of a Russian Eastern Orthodox Church standard, Do not reject me in my old age, Glenn sang the super low Contra G!
Glenn Miller is a true badass with a voice worthy of the title Basso Profundo. What I would give to have a voice like that…
P.S. We’re at Blissfest in Harbor Springs, Michigan today and tomorrow! Our first set starts at 8.
Dave Anderson: Principal Bassist of the LPO, Composer, Teacher, Bad Mofo and a great human being.
What can’t this man do? Master of classical, jazz, rock and roll and everything in between. Composer, performer, teacher of the highest levels, he is known throughout the world of bass as a true badass. He has studied and played with everyone, and I mean everyone. Frank Proto, Jaco Pastorius, Bobby McFerrin, John Paul Jones, Hal Robinson, and too many others to count. I was very lucky to have him as my teacher and I am deeply grateful for all of the knowledge and skills he passed on to me. DERF!
Duets Performed by Gaelen McCormick and Ed Paulsen
P.S. Gig tonight at the Blue Light Live in Lubbock, TX. Show starts at 11 PM.
