John Ebinger performs the Double Bass works of Frank Proto, 'a serious composer of substantial invention', with Roy Hakes on piano.
"Proto is an American composer unfairly pigeonholed as a pops arranger. Ebinger's disc shows him to be a serious composer of substantial invention".
"To write for the double bass as a solo instrument is a tricky business. The ultralow sound tends to disappear behind accompaniment. Proto, once a professional bassist himself, shows in two scores for bass with piano that he knows the tricks required to keep the bass out front".
