Slap those pads

Alex Ross points us to Edmund Welles, an improbable quartet of bass clarinets. The thing is, they sound really good. Alex recommends "Creep," to which I must add "Big Bottom." That's right, they cover rock charts as well as perform their own blues and classical compositions. I'm still trying to figure out how they get a slap bass sound out of those big licorice sticks. Eric Dolphy must be so proud.
