To paraphrase Dr. Winston O’Boogie (John Lennon speaking of Chuck Berry and the art of rock and roll) – if you want to call solo bass by another name…call it… Michael Manring! A fretless virtuoso, Manring brings the instrument to places hitherto unknown, unexplored, and untried – until now. Working his virtuosity on the fretless with a myriad of tonal and textural effects and alternative tunings, Manring is a genre unto himself. Self-effacing, gracious, insightful, humble, and humorous are just a few of the adjectives to describe this conversation with Mr. “Manthing.”
