020: Rob Thorsen Trio
Summary: We convinced 3rd time dirty-guest Rob Thorsen to come back, but this time the bass is in front; Rob's leading a trio that includes Joshua White on Fender Rhodes and Fernando Gomez on drumset. Rob is the hardest working bassist in San Diego and is first-call as a sideman in addition to leading his own groups. This trio exists only 'in-the-moment' and will be playing some originals by both Rob and Joshua. click for pics Rob also gives us the inside-track on the San Diego Double Bass Summit which is coming up this summer. Rob has been the organizer, CEO, and driving force behind the summit - a yearly concert that brings together upright-bass legends like Mark Dresser, Marshall Hawkins, Burt Teresky, and many others all on one bill. If you are local to Southern CA, you can catch Rob with Louis Hayes on May 10th, 2011 at Jazz Live (see link below). Enjoy!
