Craig Butterfield and Jesse Jones: Gas Station

We’ve featured plenty of great videos from Craig Butterfield over the years, so when the double bassist sends an email I get excited. This video is a bit of a different context from his previous ones and showcases Butterfield in a duo with mandolinist Jesse Jones on the tune “Gas Station.”

The duo find a nice groove with a warm, rhythmic bass line to start things off. Butterfield takes the melody at the 1:05 mark with a nice line that develops as he adds double stops. Once he grabs his bow for a solo, he reminds you of just how much is possible on the bass.
