About the album

'Thinking of …' is an homage to the double-bass player and composer Stefano Scodanibbio who died before his time in 2012. This project gathered the “creme de la creme”of the modern double-bass world. The performers’ individual biographies read like a Who's Who of contemporary music. Eleven players with very distinct personal styles recorded separately with 10 different sound engineers in 7 different countries – Japan, USA, France, Norway, Italy, Germany, and Switzerland. Sebastian Gramss, as the producer, composer and one of the players, pays respect to Scodanibbio’s work in two ways – by leaning on his music, and by continuing his work through the exploration of new forms and approaches, pushing the limits of double bass playing even further. Due to the unpredictability of the players’ contributions, Gramss decided not to write long, continuous compositions, but instead to create a number of shorter combinable modules, which were connected after the recording was done.

The second part of the album is a collection of the most personal solo contributions – in these 11 pieces the players share their individual, personal connection to Scodanibbio’s work and show the wide scope of their musicality.

The album ends with a treat – a bonus track “Virtù”, unpublished before. The track is a live recording of a duo by Stefano Scodanibbio and Sebastian Gramss from the Altstadtherbst Festival in Dusseldorf in 2008. This piece ties the whole album together and lets us enjoy Scodanibbio’s playing with the creator of „Thinking of …“.
