"the thing that i dug so much about hearing you play is that there is like a certain touch when you hit the string right and the bass kind of says...'bowwwww'. and like if you hit it too hard it doesn't happen and if you hit it too soft it doesn't happen, and last night it kept sounding like 'bowwwwwww' and i was like hell yeah that sounds ****ing good'
"I'd never heard such a bizarre cello solo and been so satisfied in my life!"
