    I first came across Gary Karr, when, as a very young record collector, I was given a recording of Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals conducted by Bernstein (BRG 72072). On this 1962 LP Bernstein had deliberately selected some outstanding teenage musicians to play the work and Gary Karr was one of them. In fact he played The Swan normally heard on the cello but here on the double bass and Bernstein was obviously most moved by his performance as he said in his narration on the record. Aged only 19, Karr was already obtaining a uniquely strong, distinctive, lyrical and eloquent sound out of an instrument, which no one was taking seriously. It has been Karr’s obsession to reverse the public’s perception of this heavy, grumbling instrument and he is well on the way. He is the first full-time professional solo double-bassist in history according to his website and I for one would not like to disagree...musicweb-international.com
