John Goldsby's Jazz Concepts: Find Your Identity - Red Mitchell (Part 2)
- Watch a video of Red Mitchell, bass tuned in 5ths, in duo with flugelhornist Clark Terry, playing “Take the A Train.” Slightly out of sync, but incredibly musical.
- Check out Playing the Double Bass Tuned in Fifths by Dennis Masuzzo, the first method book to document this seldom-used tuning.
- Visit the Red Mitchell website for free transcriptions, a complete songbook, and Red’s beautiful book of poems.
