Über Drum & Bass in den frühen 1950s

„In the early [19]50s bass players would’ve been used to not being amplified. They would be very good at getting a lot of sound out of an acoustic bass. They might put themselves in a corner so they might get more bass out of it. They’d find all sorts of clever ways of getting more bass. Drummers would be really clever at playing quietly, they might be really good with brushes or they might be great swing drummers, who had a light touch but could play quietly but still in an exciting way. I think a lot of their skills possibly have been lost because people now have everything amplified. […] Particular for bass, there is no reason for guys to play loud anymore, they just plug in.”
