Gary Karr, a living legend on the double bass, shows no sign of slowing down in his semi-retirement from public performance. His contributions to the double bass community are unparalleled. His virtuosity, stage presence, affability, and zeal helped propel both himself and the double bass to the rank of solo artist and solo instrument. Karr, however, does not seem content to rest on his unequivocal legacy. In 2007, he recorded a self-released two-disc set, Poetic Schumann at 39, featuring Harmon Lewis on piano and double bassist Han Han Cho who also produced the recording.
