Dudley Moore & Kenny Rogers: Satin Doll

1. Dudley Moore & Kenny Rogers: Satin Doll

A video has been making the rounds on Facebook, thanks to Freemont’s Office – and it was quite unexpected. Dudley Moore and Kenny Rogers performed “Satin Doll” on The Tonight Show (date unknown). What surprised us all was that Rogers was on double bass…

2. That Funky Old Guy: Vulfpeck’s “Fugue State” Playthrough

No Treble reader Zac Sebo sent us this video saying “I found this hilarious guy covering Vulfpeck and thought you’d like it. I bet it would go over well with all your fans.” We have no idea who That Funky Old Guy is (though we’re pretty sure he’s much younger than advertised)…

Stuart Clayton: Giants of Bass – Flea

3. Stuart Clayton: Giants of Bass – Flea

Stuart Clayton just added a new video showcasing his work in progress on the new edition of Giants of Bass. In this video, he tackles the style of Flea – particularly the style of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Blood Sugar Sex Magik era. Dig the tone on that 1976 Music Man StingRay!

Troy Hughes: Rush’s “The Big Money” Playthrough

Troy Hughes has a knack for nailing Geddy Lee’s lines. So much so that he’s featured on the Rush website. However, he couldn’t quite get the tone perfect for songs from the Power Windows album until an incredible trip to get the bass he’d always wanted…

Now Nolly is back with another face-melting run-through with the song “Prayer Position” from the band’s latest album, Periphery III: Select Difficulty. The bassist rips it up with an absolutely crushing tone…

Magnus Sjöquist: Visa från utanmyra

6. Magnus Sjöquist: Visa från utanmyra

Ubass connoisseur Magnus Sjöquist sent us an all-bass version of a Swedish folk song called “Visa från utanmyra”, and it’s beautiful. “My version is inspired by the lovely version by Swedish pianist Jan Johansson and upright bassist Georg Riedel,” he told us…

House Of Waters: In Waves

7. House Of Waters: In Waves

Here’s another band I recently discovered that just blew me away. House of Waters features the trio of Hammered Dulcimer virtuoso Max ZT, bassist Moto Fukushima and percussionist Luke Notary. Members of the band have some impressive credentials too…

Prairie Prince and Bobby Vega: Chicken And Waffles

8. Prairie Prince and Bobby Vega: Chicken And Waffles

Spare Parts: Four Sticks (Led Zeppelin Cover)

10. Spare Parts: Four Sticks (Led Zeppelin Cover)

Spare Parts sent us their latest, and this time is a little different than we’ve seen from them previously. Filmed by Jody Michael Miller, here’s the trio anchored by Colin Scott performing their cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Four Sticks”…
