Craig Akin: “Sanford and Son” Theme on Upright Bass

Our friend Jayme Lewis shared this video on Facebook, with just two words: “So sick.”

The bassist is Craig Akin. The tune is “The Streetbeater” by Quincy Jones – but you may know it better as the theme to Sanford and Son.

So sick is right. The only thing better would be if it could be a little longer.
