I’ve been digging the new “vault” release by Lenny White (check out the story we shared earlier this week). This new album offers up music from White’s 1997 tour with his band, which included two bassists: Victor Bailey and Foley.
So I started hunting for videos from this era and found this great one.
This line up is close to the one on the album, except Jerry Brooks is holding down the low end in place of Bailey (the credits at the end of the video are wrong).
And Jerry is laying it down, alternating between a tight, funky bass line and then switching to a swinging walking line, and back.
