Rich and Tom Appleman: Song for My Father

Here’s a wonderful melodic treatment of “Song for My Father”, feathering Rich Appleman on acoustic bass and his son Tom on electric bass.

After making his mark with the Navy Band, Rich performed in numerous pit crews, on countless jingles and with a long list of notables including Lionel Hampton, the Fringe, the Boston Pops Orchestra and Slide Hampton, to name a few.

Check out the precision playing featuring spot on intonation and counterpoint.

And Happy Father’s Day!
