The London-based jazzer swung by our office with his bass and treated us to some super-stylish pizzicato

Usually it's a Stradivarius violin or a Baroque recorder that serenades us just outside the studio at Classic FM, but a few days ago we had a visit from jazz bassist, composer and arranger Misha Mullov-Abbado. 

Misha was the winner of the 2014 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize, a former City of Music Foundation Artist and also won the 2014 Dankworth Prize for jazz composition. But we'll let him (and his bass) do the talking.
