Antonio Sanchez and Nathan East: “The Chicken” Jam

Today, we have a nice video featuring bass legend Nathan East and super drummer Antonio Sanchez. They take on the classic tune, “The Chicken” (popularized for us by Jaco Pastorius). Nathan solos the back pickup and goes to WORK!

I’m a HUGE fan of Antonio Sanchez as well, and he locks right in with Nathan!

R.I.P., Jaco, your legacy will live on forever.

    Jaco didn’t write this. Pee Wee Ellis did.

    I can’t add this to my watch later playlist because it’s uploaded to “YouTube Kids.” ? Guess I just won’t watch it

      That’s an upload setting they need to turn off. It can easily be looked over.
