The Next Page An Upright City Pittsburgh and the jazz bass 2010-12-12 Richard Frushell Stacy InnerstPost-Gazette cont. Symphony musicians had a role in the classical training of Pittsburgh jazz players. Their pupils included Ray Brown and Jimmy Di Julio, both of them schooled musicians, masters of their instrument and impressive arco (bow) players, who also played jazz. Jimmy is properly thought of as a surpassingly talented bassist, seen and heard for years on television and popular in his studio playing, club dates and recordings. Perhaps he is the most complete bassist ever to come from Pittsburgh; to say that he has a national reputation on both coasts is to understate the matter. ” - Richard Frushell
