Chick Corea and Friends, with Eddie Gomez: Humpty Dumpty

Steve Bailey recently sent me a cool video of bass players congratulating Eddie Gomez on his recent honorary doctorate from Berklee School of Music. A recurring theme in everyone’s praise was Eddie’s playing on the song “Humpty Dumpty,” which led me to revisit the song and find a few versions.

Here’s a clip of Eddie playing it alongside Chick Corea, Bob Berg, and Steve Gadd at a jazz festival in Stuttgart in 1992. The bassist plays the melody along with Corea before laying into a solid walk to support the rest of the band. Check out his solo at the 5:52 mark and get ready to hit the woodshed.
