GARY KARR "The Genius":

"It's outstanding and has more information than any other website for the contrabasso. My hat is off to you, Vito!"

GARY KARR says:

your Bottesini Tarantella performance  is very impressive and makes me wonder why you are afraid to play with Tom Martin? You're great and have a terrific facility. Bravissimo! Your musical concept makes a lot of sense to me, but I'm not Italian! If anyone should know how to interpret a Tarantella, it's YOU!!

GARY KARR or "G" not  like "G ary" but the "G...ENIUS" of the Classical Doublebass  "TALKS" about "MY WAY OF PLAYING"!!!

My dear, Vito,

Thank you for sending me your old video. You certainly are a very passionate musician and I love your expressiveness that you bring to the music. I am so envious of your left hand which looks like a great cellist! It is beautiful to watch. Oh, how I wish that I had the strength in my left hand to do what you do with yours! I have a very weak third finger and I still practice daily to try to strengthen it but to no avail. Thank you for the offer of your Maestro’s orchestrations but I have all that I need. In fact, I have had so many orchestrations to various pieces that I’ve played over the years that I decided to give them all to the International Society of Bassists so that they can make them available to all solo players.

Much love,

 

Gary

The purpose of this letter is share with you my enormous respect I also have for the very effective work that has been done by Vito Liuzzi. More than any of my colleagues he has reached out internationally to draw attention to the merits of our beloved instrument, the contrabasso, and he has been an exemplary teacher, beautiful soloist and a very energetic international leader in our family of contrabasso players. I cannot imagine a world without Vito Liuzzi and your country should be very proud of his accomplishments as an international promoter of the greatness of the Italian music world. He is a big talent, a brilliant scholar and a beautiful human being. For me, it is a great honour to have him as a colleague.

Most respectfully and sincerely,

Gary Karr

According to the 'authoritative opinion of Gary Karr or "The Genius" this my humble video titled "Joking with a doublebass" is not at all a "joke" but "AMAZING" !!! and the real and concrete realization of my new bass for classical and jazz techniques. Actually Gary is a good friend of mine for nearly ten years ago and "The Genius" has always been far too kind to me. Love & Love, Gary ... or "G" not as "G ... ary" but G ... enius ".
