Seventeen year-old Holden Predmore plays bass at Nathan Hale High School. He shares an hour of his favorite jazz with Abe Beeson on October 5 from 8:00-9:00 pm.
Which instrument do you play and why? I play bass because bass is cool and it is the base of all music.
What’s your all-time favorite jazz piece? "So What" by Miles Davis off of Four and More.
Who is your jazz hero? Currently, Esperanza Spalding.
Why jazz? Because it's better than classical (and because it's the root of all modern music).
