Anton Davidyants and Valeriy Stepanov: Self Portrait

Sometimes an older video hits the radar that’s so good, I have to check our archives to make sure we haven’t shared it before.

Four years ago, Anton Davidyants teamed up with Valeriy Stepanov to record a cover of Mike Mainieri’s “Self Portrait.”

“[Mainieri] performed it with Steps Ahead in 1986 in Tokyo,” Anton shared. “I recently watched this concert again and couldn’t resist [recording] this.”

On this track, Valeriy played drums, keys, melodica, and sang the theme. Anton performed on his Le Fay Pangton and Marleaux Soprano basses.

    The massive strap on that little bass is the best part of this video.
    Killed a whole cow to hold that 3 lbs bass up.
