“The BASSic EXPLORATION Series very special series of 14 CDs which I dedicated to my dear friend Gary Costello. Each is an ‘Excursion’ into creative acoustic bass playing, most featuring the improvised duet music-making we experienced until his untimely death in 2006. Four other bassist colleagues – Anita Hustas, Rosie Westbrook, Clayton Thomas and Scott Dunbabin – are included on specific sessions”  DT.
