(718): El Sombrero, Live at Blue Note

Many bassists will know Phil Palombi as a jazz bass guru and Scott Lafaro aficionado, but he’s got a funky electric side too.

Here’s a video of his spacey jam trio (718) performing “El Sombrero” during their CD release party at the Blue Note in New York City. The group also includes keyboardist Matthew Fries and drummer Eric Halvorson.

Their debut album, Sputnik, was released last month.
