Elvis Presley with Jerry Scheff: “Suspicious Minds”, Live 1970

We recently featured Jerry Scheff in a new series, Profiles in Tone. In that interview, Jerry shared insights on how he got his tone.

While I was researching for the interview, I found this clip from a 1970 concert with Elvis Presley in Las Vegas. The whole band is cooking, but Scheff’s bubbling yet muscular bass line really brings the song to life.

Blown away by Jerry’s playing (whole band really) and Elvis’s showmanship. Great, great clip. I’m too young to know him, so I appreciate seeing this. Wow.



Jerry is a ‘great’ bassist! Very melodic and tasteful
