Nina June & Fortheloveofbass: It’s Alright (Baby’s Coming Back)

We’re excited about a new project called “fortheloveofbass”. Started by Ivo Schot, the concept is to make pop songs work with only a singer and a bassist.

“As a musician and bass player, my greatest desire is to connect and communicate. In my opinion the best way to do this, is to play a good song,” he explains. “When a vocalist and instrumentalist perform a song together, there is an intimate connection. [Fortheloveofbass] is the connection between vocalist and instrumentalist. It is the glorification of the low end. But most of all, it is about the challenge of making a good song work with just a bass guitar and an emphasis on the song.”

The project kicks off today with this video of Schot with vocalist Nina June performing a hauntingly beautiful version of the Eurythmics’ “It’s Alright (Baby’s Coming Back)”. The bassist creates perfectly complementary lines to emphasize June’s sultry voice.
