Excerpt of a performance by the Russian National Orchestra Bass Quintet.

Duration: 6'
2003

Instrumentation: five double-basses (at least one with C string or B extension)

"Who's on First?" for five double-basses integrates elements of jazz in a light-hearted take on Abbot and Costello's classic routine.
