Jason Matthews: “Fritter Boy” Bass Solo

Here’s bassist Jason Matthews, performing Adam Nitti‘s “Fritter Boy”. Matthews studied with Nitti for a short time, and had this to say about the performance:

“Obviously I don’t have a six string bass, so adjustments had to be made in certain parts, notably the sweeps. Beyond that, I don’t play Adam’s exact walking line at the end. Rather than transcribe his part, I’ve just improvised over the chord changes, which follow a jazz blues pattern. Thanks to Adam for the great music and for his genius teachings for the short time I studied under him!”
