Time for Three was performing with the Modesto Symphony here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and Ranaan had a chance to sit down for an in-person “round two” for the podcast.
We dig into all kinds of things:
- why Ranaan doesn’t carry his own bass out… and why the old-schoolers give him grief about it
- starting to use the Laborie endpin
- changes that Ranaan has made to his technique over time
- staying in shape on the road
- how the group creates music while living in three separate cities
- Ranaan’s focus on education
- advice that he’d give my former parents and students about a life in music
