Monday YouTube Fix: Ranaan Meyer

Andrew Hitz

Ranaan is one of the greatest bass players in the world and I am lucky to call him one of my best friends.  He is also an incredible entrepreneur and is one of the founding members of the wildly successful trio Time for Three. The bass and the tuba of course have a lot of similarities.  Any time I am having trouble making something sound effortless on the tuba I like to listen to musicians like Ranaan.  The basses limitations are obvious compared to a violin or a trumpet, yet when Ranaan is playing they seem to not exist.  The clarity and "amount" of tone he can achieve on very fast sixteenth note passages in this version of Czardas is nothing short of amazing.

Ranaan is a bass clef inspiration to many.  Enjoy!
