Here is the recording of the marimba/bass duet of “Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella” arranged by Nathan Daughtrey. This duet version, for marimba (Jeff Sass) and bass (Jeff Skaare), was performed at Faith Lutheran Church’s Christmas Eve service. If you enjoy it, please go by the “Yuletide Marimba” book at Steve Weiss Music today!
I will be performing on a marimba + electric bass duet of Nathan Daughtrey’s arrangement of “Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella” this Sunday at Faith Lutheran Church in Minnneapolis, MN. I will be playing the marimba and Jeff Skaare will be playing electric bass. We will be playing at all 3 services (8am, 9:15am, 10:45pm).
Makoto Nakura’s Wood and Forest Album has been released. Head over to the following places to purchase this album filled with marimba and vibraphone music:
My personal favorite is the Duo for Viola and Vibraphone. This three movement work really blends the beauty of the vibraphone and the viola. Both instruments are played in a very relaxing style that invokes visions of a sitting by the fire in a northern woods cabin. This was also the first recording of the world’s largest vibraphone. I don’t have the details on how large it is exactly but I will try and find out.
It was great to see this entire project fully funded on Kickstarter. For more information and the latest news visit the Kickstarter page.
