Notes & Reviews:

With this recording, double bassist Anthony Stoops embarks on an unlikely project - that of enlarging the repertoire for solo double bass music in order to legitimatize the double bass as an important solo instrument. Performing five new works by American composers, some of them commissioned by him, Stoops is a strong advocate for his project. An international acclaimed soloist, pedagogue, orchestral and chamber musician, Stoops is Associate Professor of Double Bass at the University of Oklahoma and Co-principal Bass of the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. A graduate of Northwestern University, the University of Iowa and the University of Michigan, Stoops performs on a custom double bass made for him by American luthier Aaron Reiley.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
David Maki's four-movement suite Out of the Woods is an expressively satisfying composition that pulls us in various directions, all relatively tonally comprehensible. Musically it is simple. This is a relatively easy listening program. I enjoyed it and I suspect you would, too. It is recorded with clarity.
