Michael Manring

Inspired by his teacher Jaco Pastorius, Manring has taken the electric bass into new territory. A native of the Washington, DC, area, he played classical bass in high school chamber groups and orchestra while also working in local Top 40 bands. From 1979 to 1982, he honed his chops in the DC fusion group Natural Bridge and also started performing with guitarist Michael Hedges. Manring played on Hedges's Windham Hill debut Breakfast in the Fields. Since then, the bassist has become the Windham Hill session man, recording on albums by Will Ackerman, Ira Stein, and Russel Walder in addition to his frequent tours with Hedges. Manring is a also a key member in the label's all-star band, Montreux. ~ Linda Kohanov, Rovi

Michael is my son's mentor, and this wonderful man has enriched our lives gloriously.
This guy is the only person I've ever heard that actually can make slap sound good on a fretless. WOW.

I must see this man live. Send him to the Dakota in Minneapolis.

I've been listening to Michael for years. I had the honor of studying with him in the '90's. Great player. Great human being. Try to find his earlier works: Unusual Weather, Toward the Center of Night, and Drastic Measures.
I just recently discovered this bassist on YouTube. Inspirationa l playing for sure, but I'm not sold on all the detuning/tun i n g . It makes for beautiful music, but somehow seems a bit unnatural (gimmicky?).
He's an absolutely phenomenal bass player and musician. He definitely possesses monster chops. Michael Manring is a gift to the music world. You can really hear the Jaco influences in his uptempo music.
See this man. See him in as small a place as you can- you'll want to get real close. You will not BELIEVE the sounds he coaxes froma bass.
Why have I never heard of this guy. He makes me wanna pick a bass right now. What a G.
Saw Michael a few times in small venues in or around Boston. Once with Michael Hedges. Always AMAZING.!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Way underrated. Really good stuff.
This guy is great. This is the first I`ve heard of him. Silly me!!!
Michael Manring is an awesome bass player! He is one of those amazing bass players who were taught by Jaco Pastorius himself!
