SuperBass: Two For The Blues

We’ve been following John Goldsby on Twitter for a while now, and he’s one of the great friends to us and many others there.

So as we were browsing for videos of John, I ran into this one. Four bass players, a vocalist and a drummer playing a phone book. I couldn’t resist.

The four bassists include John, plus John Clayton, Ray Brown and Christian McBride. They’re joined by John Riley on phone book and brushes, and Carmen Bradford on vocals.

If you’re not already following John on Twitter, check him out. Hopefully he’ll have time to share a few comments about the video.
