Gary Karr became an audiophile favorite largely as a result of the King Super Analogue recording of Albinoni's Adagio in G minor. In 1959, Karr made his first record entitled Gary Karr Plays Double Bass, a collection of pieces from Ecles, Ravel, Bloch and others for Golden Crest Records. A few years later a second recording of Alec Wilder compositions for Bass and Piano and Bass and Guitar was also released on Golden Crest. On this outstanding second effort Karr is accompanied by Bernie Leighton on piano and Fredrick Hand on guitar. After auditioning the master tapes Classic Records decided that these two wonderful recordings by a stellar bass musician needed to be reissued.
