Marcus Miller and Omar Hakim: Jean Pierre (Spring Bass Bash)

More vidoes from the Spring Bass Bash at Berklee are popping up, and they are gems for sure! The event featured legends Steve Bailey, Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor, Wooten and many more.

In this clip, we hear Marcus jamming on the tune, “Jean Pierre” with drummer and longtime friend Omar Hakim. They have an interesting sound together. I love Omar’s use of dynamics here!

If you enjoy this duo, I encourage you to check out Joe Sample’s 1989 release Spellbound. Marcus and Omar are playing some incredible stuff!
