Chris Tiger Ellis: Teen Town

Our Facebook friend and bassist Chris Tiger Ellis posted a video over the weekend of his take on the Jaco Pastorius/Weather Report tune “Teen Town”.

“I just wanted to play Teen Town,” Ellis said. “I used my bridge pickup with my trebles all the way down. I put my little twist on it too but I hope you enjoy it.”

We did. Especially the improvised parts, and the mention of “my trebles all the way down”!
