Steve Uccello and Billy Jones: Thursday’s Theme
Steve Uccello sent us his latest video, which is a bass ensemble version of Benny Golson’s “Thursday’s Theme” from his 1958 album Benny and the Philadelphians. Along with drummer Billy Jones, the bassist covers all parts of the song with two double basses and a resophonic contrabass guitar made by Paul Beard.
Uccello comps chords, bows, and plays slide for the melody, and walks the bass line. That’s worth triple pay in our books.
