Jan Urbanec: Acid Jazz Fingerstyle/Slap Bass Groove

1. Jan Urbanec: Acid Jazz Fingerstyle/Slap Bass Groove

I’ve been following Czech bass player Jan Urbanec for many years now. As great as his videos are, they don’t have a lot of views. Maybe we can change that. Check out this cool acid jazz groove. Or as Jan calls it, “Just two grooves.” The only thing better would be if it was longer…

No-Metric: Cosmo Funk

2. No-Metric: Cosmo Funk

Bassist Fernando Molinari shared this video of his band with us, and once again, it knocked us out. This is the Brazilian fusion group No-Metric, playing “Cosmo Funk”…

When we first featured Marcelo Feldman he was covering Jackson 5′s “I’ll Be There”. This time he’s tackling Jackson’s “Beat It”. Watch for his rendition of the guitar solo played on a green-stringed Stingray…

Vulfpeck: Joe Dart’s Isolated Bass Track on “Beastly”

5. Vulfpeck: Joe Dart’s Isolated Bass Track on “Beastly”

Jack Stratton sent me this video, which made my day. We’re all huge Joe Dart and Vulfpeck fans around here, and so it was a nice treat to hear Joe’s bass line to the tune “Beastly” in all its glory. If you want to hear the original, we have that too…

Ben Hands: Solo Bass Cover of Adele’s “Someone Like You”

6. Ben Hands: Solo Bass Cover of Adele’s “Someone Like You”

Yep, we dig it when bassists take pop tunes and turn up the awesome meter by arranging them as a solo bass piece. Here’s Ben Hands doing his thing to make Adele’s “Someone Like You” way cooler. (We may be biased).

Antonio Angotti: Panic Superstition Bass Cover

7. Antonio Angotti: Panic Superstition Bass Cover

Antonio Angotti shared this interesting mashup with us, with the bassist playing Chris Wolstenholme’s bass line from Muse’s “Panic Station” against Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”. Very cool… and a little mind-bending too.

Lenny White Band: “Wolfbane” Live

9. Lenny White Band: “Wolfbane” Live

I’ve been digging the new “vault” release by Lenny White. 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…
