Creating accessible learning opportunities
for the bass community
"This work will prove helpful to the intermediate bassist who needs a resource that encourages analysis as it helps the creative juices to flow. I am especially glad that Danny has included recorded examples so that the student can hear things like groove, tone, concept and other items that books alone cannot address. Bravo!"
-John Clayton, Jazz Bassist/Educator
The Low Down accomplishes teaching the basics of sound production, layout development, and supportive walking line construction.
"Bassist, Danny Ziemann's new Jazz bass book, The Low Down, is chock full of pertinent and important information for the aspiring Jazz bassist...a well thought out and sequenced method to illustrate the myriad of options that we bassists have to become a more musical, swinging, and articulate bassist. The information is clearly stated. Now bassists, it's your time to go to work! Congratulations Mr. Ziemann."
