“Following up his excellent 2019 documentary, Beneath the Bassline, Nick Wells takes a deep dive into the art, science, and history of the upright bass in jazz for Walking the Changes. The 113-minute film, which unfolds at the comfortable pace of a mid-tempo standard, features a who’s-who of the instrument talking about their craft and their influences. This is augmented by archival footage and punctuated by a handful of intimate performances. From the downbeat, players like John Patitucci, Dave Holland, Christian McBride, and Ron Carter deliver pearls of wisdom.” Chris Jisi, Bass Magazine
