Ben Jones: Minneapolis 1987

My good friend Ben Jones posted this clip a few days ago and I couldn’t resist sharing it! In this clip, we hear Ben cover the great Brian Bromberg classic, “Minneapolis 1987“.

Playing on a Bromberg Signature from Carvin, Ben locks in the groove and tone in this one!! I am a huge Bromberg fan and this is excellent work! Be sure to stay up with him on his YouTube channel for more BASS!!!

    Niece!! This is some good stuff right here. I believe the first time that I ever heard BB was on Bass Player (magazine) Anniversary CD. The tune was Fooled Ya… man my just jaw dropped on that one. Such a killer bassist, and Mr. Jones is doing a fantastic job on this cover/play-through. Thanks for sharing!

    Very good. I have those same pickups on a 2013 Carvin Icon 5. Nothing better.
