    I received Vulfpeck’s Mr Finish Line on vinyl recently, and I’ve been spinning it ever since. Here’s the most recent video release for the track, “Business Casual.” I love the vocals on this one, and as always, the bass playing of Joe Dart. »

    Vulfpeck: Dean Town (Live)

    Vulfpeck’s “Dean Town” is one of the all-time favorites around here. So it was super cool to see the band share this live performance of the tune, which took place during the “Wisdom of Crowds Tour 2017” in Dublin, Ireland. I was also super impressed with the audience, who pretty much sang it note for... »

    2017 Reader Favorites – #1: Joe Dart

    Outside of his incredible bass playing, no one knew much about Joe Dart. That changed in August when he sat down with Mitch to record episode #32 of Groove – the No Treble podcast.

  • Vulfpeck with Bernard Purdie: Kid Charlemagne

    Vulfpeck with Bernard Purdie: Kid Charlemagne

    This must be what living the dream looks like. Vulfpeck performed with drum legend Bernard Purdie at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York last year, which included this cover of Steely Dan’s “Kid Charlemagne,” a tune that originally featured Purdie. And it is obvious bassist Joe Dart was loving life. »
