An Evening With Eddie Gomez


An Evening With Eddie Gomez is the latest release in the Thirty-Six Walker Street Prods./David Gage String Instruments Masterclass Series. Produced in collaboration with Telling Pictures and filmed live at David Gage's shop by Academy Award-Winning Director Rob Epstein, this DVD is a landmark venture in instructional/performance video for bass.

Eddie Gomez is one of the most recognized names in jazz bass. His solo works, as well as his collaborations with luminaries such as Bill Evans, Chick Corea, and Paul Bley, are an important part of the cannon of jazz music. In this video, he engages a live audience of professional bassists, amateurs, students, and enthusiasts. Rob Epstein won Best Feature-length Documentary Oscars for "The Times of Harvey Milk" (1984) and "Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt" (1989). His work on this project is both subtle and sure. He leaves Mr. Gomez the room he needs to express himself while maintaining a compelling perspective on the music and spontaneous discussion.
