Top 10: The Most Watched Bass Videos (February 2021)
What a great day to sit back and listen to some great tunes, with great bass. Here are the top 10 No Treble reader favorite videos from February 2021.
I have a special treat today! Louis Johnson is one of my favorite bassists, but criminally underrated. Here he is with the Fifth Beatle, Billy Preston. Can you believe he was only 17? Armed with a P Bass, Louis is in full force.
Ever since Pino Palladino and Blake Mills announced their collaborative album, we’ve been dying to hear more. Now the duo has unveiled a live performance video for “Man From Molse” featuring the bassist on his iconic fretless Music Man StingRay.
It’s been a while since we’ve shared a video by Scary Pockets, but this one is too cool to pass up. In this clip, the band (with Anna Butterss on bass) mashes up Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity” with some John Mayer-inspired sounds.
I became a huge fan of Michael Hedges and Michael Manring during my high school years – individually and collectively. Manring recently shared this video on Facebook of their performance of the Hedges’ tune, “I’m Coming Home”.
No Treble readers are bringing it with the videos lately. Here’s one sent to us by Andrew McKinney. Andrew recorded a version of Carol Kaye’s funky line from “El Toro Poo Poo” with his 1962 P Bass with flats - and an assist by his daughter.
There is no denying that Brian Bromberg is an absolute monster. Definitely one of my biggest influences! In this clip, Brian is at Bass Player Live in ’08, talking about his triplet technique and performing his classic tune “Bass Face.”
Tedeschi Trucks Band streamed a concert last night for The Fireside Sessions, and this one was a bit different. The band “re-interpreting a setlist of favorites as a quartet,” which includes Brandon Boone on bass.
Zycopolis TV just shared an epic video from Jazz à Juan 1994 with Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Steve Swallow, and Bill Stewart.
Yesterday was definitely a special day. I ran across this classic clip of the masterful Melvin Lee Davis with Chaka Khan covering “My Funny Valentine” last night. Melvin plays a beautiful solo on a Ken Smith 7 String!
It’s always a blast watching videos by The Main Squeeze. The band always nails it on their covers, and they look like they’re having a lot of fun recording them. Here’s their latest, with their cool take on “Hotel California”.
