    At the CD “Pieces of jade”, there’s also a Bill Evans interview from 1966, and he addresses this issue:

    “I never heard any sustaining sound in bass that could compare with Scott’s. I read once where anybody said he had a “small tone” or something like this … I just can’t imagine how anyone could say that. He had the largest, longest sound of any bass that I’ve ever heard, you know … [laughs].“
