This virtuosic piece by composer/bassist Deak combines narration and music in an attempt to rehabilitate the reputation of the unhappy villain of many childhood tales. With wit and a non-preachy seriousness, Deak shows us that even "big bad wolves" have feelings and a right to their place in the order of things. A challenging piece for the accomplished player, B.B Wolf will delight children and adults alike.
