Top 10: The Most Watched Bass Videos (September 2020)
We can’t think of a better way to end the week than with our monthly celebration of the top 10 reader favorite bass videos on No Treble. Here are your favorites from the month of September 2020.
I’ve been digging Khruangbin’s new album a lot lately. And then as luck would have it, this video hit my radar this morning. Laura Lee and the band performed at Pickathon in August 2019. Here’s their tune, “Rules”.
Vulfpeck has a new album coming out, and we get to check out the first single. “LAX” was co-written by Joey Dosik, who handles the vocals and sax on the tune, along with Joe Dart on bass.
Juliaplaysgroove has a new U-Bass, and she’s putting it to good use. In this clip, she takes on The Supremes hit tune, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” and absolutely nails James Jamerson’s line (and the tone!)
The Faces “Stay with Me” is one of my all-time favorites, thanks in large part to Ronnie Lane’s all-time great bass line. Here’s a clip of the band performing the tune on the BBC program “Sounds For Saturday” on October 26, 1971.
Alex Browne tipped us to this awesome video of singer/songwriter Rex Orange County in the studio with the one and only Pino Palladino. The duo performed three songs from the guitarist’s 2016 album, “bcos u will never be free”.
Experience Hendrix has announced a new release coming on November 20th from the concerts Hendrix performed in Maui in 1970. Here’s some awesome footage of the band performing “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” - with Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell.
Back in July, Mike Portnoy, Stu Hamm, Paulie Z, Walter Ino got together virtually to record something in support of the David Z Foundation. They chose Rush’s “YYZ” as the tune, and Stu threw in some cool slap and tap lines throughout.
Back in the 80s, I wore out my copy of Pete Townshend’s “White City: A Novel” record, thanks in large part to Pino Palladino. “Give Blood” recently came up on my shuffle, and I started looking for videos. That brought me to this excellent play-through by Gonzalo Godio.
I’m always excited to see a new Cory Henry and The Funk Apostles video drop. Here’s one they shared a few days ago. The band – which includes Sharay Reed on bass – is absolutely on fire on the tune, “Testify.”
The great Melvin Lee Davis just dropped an epic video featuring a brand-new tune. Written by Davis and keyboardist Mike Cee Carpenter, here’s the funky “J-Dub Walkin’.”
