Carlos Del Pino is an amazing jazz double bass player from Cuba. Now living in NYC, he has become the epitome of passion, power and precision when performing. This cat is awesome! Accompanying Carlos in the background, you can hear Chiemi Nakai (piano), Emmanuel Bizeau (conga’s) and David Eure (violin).

I dont think its where you practice all those hours, its that you practice all those hours. Though the power of a good tumbao cant be denied.

maybe don’t judge a player from just one clip?
(I haven’t check others so I’m either in for a good or bad surprise, I suppose).

Well, first off, this is not a “double bass” (DB) he’s playing. It’s an electric upright bass (EUB).

Second, FrancescoGuardi: It’s better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and prove it.

Really boring. No pathos, no thinking, no music at all.
Do less Carlos and don’t go so mechanical. And don’t forget to breath while you play.
You can practise this stuff when you are home, you have a good technic but you really don’t know how to use it. And when you go to play music use your technic to make music, and not just tricks and effects and short fragments of plain scales. Also the timing is really uncertain. This is the opposite of “virtuoso”

Really, going fast in no proof of being a genius or something -_-…
This wasn’t good, or beautiful or anything.
I’d rather like Pink floyd, who are not good technically, but genius in composition.

Double bass playing is nothing without tone. I’d like to see him do this on a proper DB with real action and the physicality that goes with it. This is just masturbation pure and simple.

What the hell is this? Let me play the bass like a guitar and say I’m Virtuoso. Besides you can’t even hear him…….

wow I guess just because you can say a lot vulgar words doesn’t mean you know how to speak, even if you are correct.

To be honest, I feel there’s good and bad in this. Personally, I didn’t think his playing was that bad by itself. If you can make out what he’s playing, it actually has an interesting sound. That said, this would have been better as a solo performance with no accompaniment. Not only does the piano drown out the bass, but his playing simply does not go well with the piano at all.
