Slam Stewart was an exceptional jazz musician who expanded the expressive possibilities of the double bass with his unique style and technique. Whether he was comping with a slapping pizzicato, or soloing with the bow, he had a big, rough, gut-string sound. He had perfect time, great intonation and a seemingly endless supply of energy. Slam was in many respects the most advanced bassist of the swing era. His rhythmic synchopations are extremely complex. He played some of the most sophisticated music of his time, but with lightness and humor.

Some of his best bass playing is from the 1947 recordings with the Lionel Hampton All-stars. Slam is 33 years old and at the top of his game; the solos are longer, more developed, his technique is dazzling. The book ends as it began with a 1951 version of Flat foot floogie, recorded with Slim Gaillard, followed by the 1952 Art Tatum trio. 114 pages. Spiral bound. Written in standard notation only (no TAB).
