Doug Alexis: The Chicken

Facebook friend Art Araya shared this remarkable and unique video of bassist Doug Alexis performing his own take on “The Chicken”.

The tune, written by Pee Wee Ellis, was made popular of course by Jaco Pastorius.

This has to be the most creative version we’ve heard yet.

  1. Very cool! Love the tonality! Man, I’m having my challenge trying to tap. What’s the secret besides low action?

  2. Hot and Funky just like it’s supposed to be! Great rhythm and control. Very nicely done.
