Here are some reviews of this CD:
It's beautifully paced, and really well-recorded. I greatly dig the group work,and the solo pieces are stunning.'
- Joe Gallant, The Illuminati Orchestra

“Big Droppins is an extraordinary collection of both solo exhibitions and eclectic ensemble pieces. It is comprised of five original compositions from Dimin and five skillfully crafted, orchestrated arrangements of classic jazz standards. With his fretted and fretless basses, his Boomerang Phrase Sampler, and his sophisticated knowledge of harmony, Dimin has redefined the art of looping and solo electric bass performance. Assisted by the brilliant work of world renowned soprano saxophonist Paul McCandless on two tracks and accompanied by several members of his talented “musical family”, Dimin demonstrates his technical proficiency in solo, duo, trio, and quartet settings. Lyrical fretless soloing, multi-layered textures, impeccable intonation, and rich tone can be found throughout. ...Bottom Line: With his innovative chordal approach to solo electric bass performance and the release of his first recording as a leader, Big Droppins, Michael Dimin has elevated the standards in the field of bass artistry. Look out!”

THE CORE METHOD
A Complete and Innovative Method for 4,5 and 6 String Electric Bass.

This method, written by Michael Dimin, assumes that you've played bass for, at least, a few months and that you have a basic understanding of the major scale and can fairly easy figure out the location of any single note on the fretboard. Although there is a great deal to be learned from this book on its own, it is recommended to work through the book with a good teacher. Be advised that many bass instructors are not familiar with this method. I know, however, that if they take the time to go through this book that your lessons will be much more rewarding and your teacher will become a much better teacher.
