    Apres Un Reve

    All Analogue AAA Recording


    Mastered by Kevin Gray from the Original Analogue Tapes


    Pressed at Pallas in Germany


    Gary Karr performs with Harmon Lewis on piano for an offering of classical pieces by composers that include Gershwin, Wagner, Hindemith, and more.


    For bassists, this album should have been titled Hindemith Sonata. Karr's non-academic approach to this romantic music is very compelling and different from most interpretations.


    Gary Karr, acclaimed as the world's leading solo bassist (Time Magazine), is, in fact, the first solo doublebassist in history to make that pursuit a full-time career. It is a career that adds new lustre to his already lustrous 1611 Amati doublebass which was given to him by the widow of Serge Koussevitzky.


    Since his debut with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in 1962, Karr has performed as soloist on six continents with orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Simon Bolivar Orchestra (Caracas, Venezuela), Jerusalem Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and with all the major orchestras of Australia.

    Arpeggione Sonata

    All Analogue AAA Recording


    Mastered by Kevin Gray from the Original Analogue Tapes


    Pressed at Pallas in Germany


    This release features Gary Karr performing with Harmon Lewis on piano for a group of classical pieces, folk songs, and carols by Schubert, Rachmaninoff, Saint-Saens, and more.


    Although it features Schubert's Arpeggione Sonata, the gem on this recording is a Canadian folksong, When I Wake Up in the Morning. It has been a staple encore piece of the Karr/Lewis Duo for 30 years since they lived in Nova Scotia.


    Gary Karr, acclaimed as the world's leading solo bassist (Time Magazine), is, in fact, the first solo doublebassist in history to make that pursuit a full-time career.

    Plays Double Bass

    Gary Karr became an audiophile favorite largely as a result of the King Super Analogue recording of Albinoni's Adagio in G minor played by Gary Karr on solo bass with organ accompaniment. In 1959, Gary Karr made his first record entitled "Gary Karr Plays Double Bass" a collection of pieces from Eccles, Ravel, Bloch and others for Golden Crest Records. A few years later a second recording of Alec Wilder compositions for Bass and Piano and Bass and Guitar was also released on Golden Crest. On this outstanding second effort Gary Karr is accompanied by Bernie Leighton on piano and Fredrick Hand on guitar. After auditioning the master tapes we decided that these two wonderful recordings by a stellar bass musician needed to be reissued which is what we have done here by combining the recordings into a two disc set as part of the "Classic Records Presents " Series. Both titles were mastered and transferred by Bernie Grundman in Hollywood California from the original analog master tapes and cut on Classic Records' "All Tube" cutting system. If you are a Gary Karr fan then this is a must have release, If you are unfamiliar with "Mr. Bass" then these recording are a great place to start.

    Kol Nidrei

    All Analogue AAA Recording


    Mastered by Kevin Gray from the Original Analogue Tapes


    Pressed at Pallas in Germany


    Gary Karr performs with Harmon Lewis on piano and pipe organ for a handful of classical pieces by Bach, Wilder, Koussevitzky, and others.


    The Kol Nidrei was the musical impetus that put Karr on the path toward a solo career. He first performed this music in a synagogue at the age of eleven and still considers it his most personal piece.


    Gary Karr, acclaimed as the world's leading solo bassist (Time Magazine), is, in fact, the first solo doublebassist in history to make that pursuit a full-time career. It is a career that adds new lustre to his already lustrous 1611 Amati doublebass which was given to him by the widow of Serge Koussevitzky.

    Songs Of Prayer

    All Analogue AAA Recording


    Mastered by Kevin Gray from the Original Analogue Tapes


    Pressed at Pallas in Germany


    For this collection of songs of prayer, Gary Karr performs with Harmon Lewis on organ. Selections from Mozart, Schubert, Bizet, and more are represented on this release.


    The soulful sound of the doublebass with organ is perfectly suited for this kind of meditative music. The performance is so absorbing that it demands the listener's full attention. This music was so successful with this combination of instruments that the Karr/Lewis Duo planned to release more CDs of this spiritual nature.


    Gary Karr, acclaimed as the world's leading solo bassist (Time Magazine), is, in fact, the first solo doublebassist in history to make that pursuit a full-time career. It is a career that adds new lustre to his already lustrous 1611 Amati doublebass which was given to him by the widow of Serge Koussevitzky.
