Ed Lucie and Anthony Vitti: Forgotten Grooveyard #12

Berklee bass professor Anthony Vitti has a cool YouTube series called “Forgotten Grooveyard,” where he sits down with faculty, students and visiting artists at the school to kick out the jams.

“The idea behind the ‘Forgotten Groove Yard’ was to record some lesser known classic grooves,” Vitti writes. “As a bass player, I approach everything from a rhythm section perspective. My priorities are Time, Feel, Sound and Consistency. This is what I am trying to showcase in these videos. I thought that playing some old grooves with a little modern approach and technique, would showcase these aspects of playing the instrument.”

Here’s a great soul-inspired groove duet with fellow Berklee professor Ed Lucie. The two bassists trade back and forth between the groove and soloing.
