David Walter is one of those gifted teachers who has had a great effect on the lives of many of those who were lucky enough to study with him. The group of individuals participating in this latest Family Album decided to say a collective thank you to a man who has given us so much more than what we were contracting for when we showed up for our first lesson. We wanted to learn about the bass. But David had other ideas. The notes and rhythms were only the starting point for what was on his musical agenda.
From the Preface.

The pieces included in this album were all written by performing bassists. As with the original Family Album and the Family Album - Book 2, the pieces here represent a wide sampling of the musical spectrum. The music in this volume is as diverse as the passions and vigor of its dedicatee.
