Bassist prefers the Mississippi's low end

Posted at 4:28 PM on May 22, 2007 by Don Lee

"When I evacuated after Katrina, I landed a great job with the Minnesota Orchestra, but Minneapolis closes up too early to play two gigs a night. I had to get back here as soon as I could. I was going crazy away from New Orleans."

That's Louisiana Philharmonic bassist Dave Anderson, from a profile today in The New Orleans Times-Picayune.

While he was in the Twin Cities, he was interviewed on MPR a couple of times, including this one.
