Patax: “Billie Jean” Rumba

Our good friend Sylvain Gros-Desormeaux delivers once again with a incredible video he’s shared with us.

“This band Patax has some serious stuff. DIG THAT TONE!!! The bassist is really amazing. I hope you guys will enjoy watching this an share it to the readers.”

That bassist is Alain Perez, who also handles vocal improvisation in this performance of their unique take on Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”. The tune was arranged by Patax band member Jorge Perez and is available on iTunes.

Sylvain closed with a question: “I can’t figure out the type of bass the Alain is playing. Anyone know?” If you do, please share in the comments.
