Editor’s Note: At the end of each year, we tally up all the article and video views on No Treble to come up with a list of the top 10 most popular bassists. This is entirely based on readership, not on opinions, polls, or anything else. Just having some fun.
We first shared a video by Vulfpeck in 2011 (“Beastly“), and we were instant fans of the band and Joe Dart. It took a few years for Joe to hit the Reader Favorite list, and he’s been a mainstay since.
This year, Joe ranks #8 on the list, thanks to his work with Vulfpeck, The Fearless Flyers, Wongs Cafe, a duet with Federico Malaman, and his new signature Ernie Ball Music Man bass.
Ernie Ball Music Man has proven it gets funkier by adding to the Joe Dart Signature Bass collection. First is the original Joe Dart bass in an all-new black velvet finish to complement the original natural velvet. Second is the Joe Dart Jr.
Vulfpeck dropped this video last week, from their 2018 Red Rocks concert. Joe Dart and the band groove hard on “Tesla”, with Louis Cole.
The Fearless Flyers released another video showcasing their live performance at Madison Square Garden, with this clip of Joe Dart and the band performing “Lost My Treble Long Ago”. (And we obviously dig the tune’s name.)
The Fearless Flyers shared some exciting news yesterday. The band is releasing an album from their live performance at Madison Square Garden Here’s a preview of what’s to come, with Joe Dart and the guys getting funky on “Introducing the Fearless Flyers.”
Until now, we’ve only seen a fan-shot video of this master class performance at the 2018 Sligo Jazz. Federico Malaman shared this version of his performance of the Vulfpeck hit “Dean Town”, with Joe Dart.
Vulfpeck has shared a new project, dubbed Wongs Cafe. The band shared this note: “unearthed Vulf recording from Denver sessions … polarizing.” Here’s the group - with Joe Dart - performing “Disco De Lune”.
