D'ADDARIO'S GREAT IDEA: RECYCLE YOUR STRINGS


This seems so obvious now that someone
has done it: Instead of throwing old bass
guitar strings into landfills, why not collect
them and recycle the material? The good
folks at D'Addario have introduced a new
program to do just that, and they are
hoping to encourage you to play along.
In an extension of the company's Players
Circle rewards scheme, the Playback
recycling program offes a choice of points
that can be redeemed for product or cash
contributions to D'Addario's foundation supporting music education. That's in case you
needed more inducement than simply putting a little of your trash to good use.
You can even download a free shipping label so all you have to do is tuck those grimey
old strings in a package. Go to D'Addario's Playback webpage for details.

YO-YO MA IS A BASSIST AT HEART


Cello virtuoso and world citizen of
culture Yo-Yo Ma has a soft spot for
bass. He's felt that way since the
moment he first laid eyes on a double
bass at the Paris Conservatory, and
instantly wanted to play it. Of course,
the instrument was a little big for a fouryear-old, so his parents got him a cello
as a compromise. You know the rest.
In an entertaining and readable
interview in Mother Jones, Ma
paraphrases Wynton Marsalis in calling
the bassist in a jazz group the bluecollar worker, the guy building the street.
"You may not hear it all the time," he
says, "but if you take it away, everything
falls apart."
Ma admits he still loves the bass, and often plays the bass lines in Silk Road
Ensemble, his trans-national, multi-cultural collective of performers and composers.
