#3 Double Bass and Guitar, David Russell and Dennis Milne

What made David Russell decide to record a guitar/double bass album as his debut in 1978? Why not a solo album?

More info on the album here.

It was my first year in Rochester, and I had a chance to see David Russell up close – he was one of the guests of the guitar festival at Eastman. The other guest was Pepe Romero! Pretty big deal for m, as I had just began my classical guitar studies. I didn’t get to play in any of the master classes, but there are things I learned from those classes that I would still tell my students today. David Russell taught two classes and a total of 8 students. He was tireless and personable. I guess he still is. I would love to meet him in person one day.
