Anthony Crawford: Jazz vs Hiphop

1. Anthony Crawford: Jazz vs Hiphop

Bassist Anthony Crawford shared this on his Facebook page and it immediately caught my attention. He recorded it as a demo for his Mirura MB-2 bass, and the song is just as stunning as the bass. The story behind the music is incredible, too…

Julie Slick: Adrian Belew Power Trio “B3” Bass Playthrough

2. Julie Slick: Adrian Belew Power Trio “B3” Bass Playthrough

Thank God for Julie Slick. While wading through countless awful political posts in my Facebook feed, I saw this incredible clip of her ripping it up on the Adrian Belew Power Trio song “B3”, and it saved my day…

Vulfpeck: Dean Town

3. Vulfpeck: Dean Town

It is always a good day at No Treble HQ when a new Vulfpeck video is released. This one has lots of extra bass goodness – and funkiness – thanks to Joe Dart and some killer beats. The tune is “Dean Town”, which is a track from Vulfpeck’s new album, The Beautiful Game

Diego Tarantino: Sir Duke

4. Diego Tarantino: Sir Duke

The last time we saw Diego Tarantino, he took the Pat Metheny tune “Better Days Ahead” and turned it into a lead bass arrangement. Diego just sent us his latest, where he applied his skills to the Stevie Wonder tune, “Sir Duke”. Diego nails the lead line and throws in a terrific solo…

Andrea Caggiari: James Brown Funk Bass Lines

5. Andrea Caggiari: James Brown Funk Bass Lines

Bassist Andrea Caggiari emailed me this terrific video where he plays along to seven different James Brown tunes. Of course, this one gets funky, thanks to the original lines by Bernard Odum, Bootsy Collins, Fred Thomas, Gordon Edwards and Sweet Charles Sherrell…

Tedeschi Trucks Band: Made Up Mind (Live in Vienne)

6. Tedeschi Trucks Band: Made Up Mind (Live in Vienne)

When I grow up, I want to play bass just like Tim Lefebvre. His lines are just fantastic, and check out his massive tone on this clip of the Tedeschi Trucks Band performing “Made Up Mind”. This performance took place at the Théâtre Antique in Vienne, France on July 4, 2014…

Chris Dave Trio: Criss Cross

7. Chris Dave Trio: Criss Cross

As bass players, we know the groove is paramount. That’s why this clip of Foley laying down a killer bass line while drum master Chris Dave changes the feel over and over is incredible. Foley, who played with Miles Davis from 1987 to 1991, gets into a trance on his line…

Stuart Clayton: Giants of Bass – Marcus Miller

The last time we featured VoBa Sound Experience, they performed Led Zeppelin’s “Dazed and Confused”.

The Rolling Stones: Miss You

10. The Rolling Stones: Miss You

Ever since a new Darryl Jones documentary was announced, I’ve been listening to lots of the bassist’s work on YouTube. Here’s a great extended take of “Miss You” taken from 1995, just two years after he joined the Rolling Stones. Jones carries the groove throughout with rock solid time and feel…
