Purdie/Fabian/Oswanski “Got Groove? (Pt. 2)”
Christian Fabian has been helping to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Marleaux Bass Guitars with a series of videos using their Contra model. For the effort, he put together a trio featuring organist Ron Oswanski and drum legend Bernard Purdie.
“Basically we just played mostly original songs and a few covers ‘live’ in the studio, no click no punches,” Fabian explains.
Here’s the group performing “Got Groove? (Pt. 2),” which is a composition based around a four-bar bass line. Fabian and Purdie start things at a simmer on the line before the trio starts cooking.
