It may seem unlikely but this CD (then as a LP) was my first exposure to music made by double bass solely. Since this "satori" some 25 years ago I have heard a bunch of sometimes outstanding solo outings by bassists. (K.H. Stockhausen once called F.Grillo the "Buddha" of the double bass).
There's a buddhist proverb which goes roughly - "If you meet Buddha kill him" - in this case I would prefer to caress him.
Today it seems he's concentrating on his personal vision of baroque music.
There are not many available recordings with him in a contemporary setting. One exceptional exemple of his skills can be heard on Iancu Dumitrescu's first published CD, where he plays a grandiose interpretation of "Medium III" - strongly recommended.
