Troy Roberts’ Nu-Jive 5, Featuring Eric England: Stoner

A couple of weeks ago, we featured a video of Dane Alderson playing with Troy Roberts’ Nu-Jive, and it led me to check out more of the saxophonists videos. Mr. Roberts obviously has a knack for picking great bassists, because I was blown away by Eric England in this video for the song “Stoner.”

The bassist floats a nice big bass line to give the song a dreamy vibe, but at the 2:40 mark Roberts and England play an angular unison soli that will make you rewind to watch again.
