This special Contrabass Conversations episode features an interview with composer Paul Ramsier.  Though Paul is particularly well-known for his collaborations with Gary Karr, he continues to remain quite active as a composer and has a number of interesting projects in the works.

Throughout this interview, you will hear excerpts from Divertimento and Silent Movie, two of Paul's most popular compositions.  These excerpts come from Paul's recently released DVD titled Four Ramsier Favorites and featuring double bassist Jerome Butler on bass.  We also discuss Bass Tunes, Paul's excellent volume of duets for young bassists and a book that I frequently use with my own students.
