Igor Saavedra and Junior Ribeiro Braguinha: Footprints

Marie Takahashi shared this awesome video of South American bass heavyweights Igor Saavedra and Junior Ribeiro Braguinha getting down on Wayne Shorter’s “Footprints.”

The video was filmed during a workshop at the Escola de Música e Tecnologia in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Saavedra kicks off the solos on his custom 8-string extended range bass and knocks the crowd out at the end of his solo. Braguinha then steps in to add his own blazing runs to the mix.

  1. usually when i see someone with a 7- or 8- or 50-string something or another, i think, “oh man. here come the flashy licks with no groove.” but this cat is on it! actually both of them. very soulful.
