Jory Herman, Double Bass
Bryan Verhoye, Piano on tracks 1,2,6-10
Brendan Nguyen, Piano on tracks 3-5

Los Angeles Philharmonic bassist Jory Herman has recorded his second solo album titled Life. Vier ernste Gesänge (Four Serious Songs) by Johannes Brahms is the capstone work on this album. Adapted from the solo baritone work, this arrangement for double bass gives the disc emotional depth and highlights the rich sororities unique to the lowest instrument of the string family.
The Skellet Knell by up-and-coming composer David Kirkland Garner is a world-premier commissioned by 25 nationally recognized bassists and organized by Mr. Herman himself. This uniquely crowd-sourced composition pushes the boundaries technically while capturing sororities that are idiomatic to only the bass. Self-produced by Jory Herman and recorded by Daniel Rumley of Rumley Music and Audio Productions in 2015, the album captures the incredible depth and resonance of the double bass in contrast with the powerful yet nimble piano accompaniment of both San Diego local musicians Brendan Nguyen and Bryan Verhoye.
