Vocalist Nicki Gonzalez started the year with a bang. She’s just released a killer version of Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” featuring an incredible cast of musicians, including bassist Hadrien Feraud.
“HAPPY 2018, EVERYONE!,” she writes. “‘Thank you’ just doesn’t cut it. I owe this video to the talents, loyalty and dedication of Kamil Rustam and Hadrien Feraud who rallied a band of elites, whipped up charts and edited every second of this video. 2017 sidelined me with some curveballs but in loving fashion, these two gentleman picked up this gem that I dropped, polished it, propped it up and elevated it beyond anything I could’ve imagined.”
Feraud and Gonzalez are accompanied by drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, guitarist Matvei Sigalov, pianist Dennie Hamm, and Ruslan Sirota on organ. Besides providing a cool arrangement and solid bass line, Feraud whips up an amazing solo starting around the four-minute mark.
