    Stay tuned for the exclusive Thunder Row interview with Kai Brant, the sultry voice from our recent article, An Evening With Kai Brant.

    In her performances, Kai often sings as solo accompaniment to her bassist husband, Martin Motnik. When a beautiful voice and bass combine, the atmosphere goes smooth in a big hurry.

    Preparing For An Audition
    By Lane on Bass

    Says Keiko: "My week has been amazing!"

    He wasn't a bassist, but the contributions he made to the world of music are so significant that this man deserves a mention in our world.

    From CNN:

    "Marvin Hamlisch, a prolific composer who put together musical ensembles for an array of movies, television and theater shows, died at his home in Los Angeles, his agent said Tuesday.
    His work over a four-decade career earned him three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, a Tony and three Golden Globe awards, composing more than 40 scores for films that include "The Way We Were" and "The Sting"."
