Cyrille Aimée and Sam Anning: Tricotism

Oscar Pettiford’s “Tricotism” has been a benchmark melody for bassists since the bebop heavyweight wrote it in 1954. Today we’re checking out a superb bass and vocal version of the tune performed by Cyrille Aimée and Sam Anning.

Our friend Dylan Kuerschner sent the clip in saying our readers might like it, and I have to agree. Each musician nimbly takes on the melody before taking respective solos. Anning is totally in sync with Aimée to create perfect counter lines in his walking, and his solo would make Pettiford proud.
