Bassist Xavier Foley.

Today we’re getting the low down on the string bass with guest Xavier Foley.

From a little jazz infusion to sacred music, the bass is a versatile instrument that keeps the rest of the ensemble - from jazz trio to orchestra - in check. It holds down the rhythmic pulse, roots our intonation, and is the foundation for so much of classical music.

This week's guest is composer Xavier Foley.
