Time to set aside your work and check out some incredible bass-focused videos. Here are your top 10 favorite videos on No Treble for the month of October.
Recently, I’ve been on a big Nathan East kick. It started with a live performance of “Can’t Find My Way Home” with Eric Clapton. Here’s a fun clip with Nathan teaming up with Paul Gilbert on a discussion of the blues, and then a great blues jam.
I’ve really been digging Anton Davidyants’s videos. Here’s one he did with his trio, who performed an excellent cover of Gary Willis’s tune, “It’s Only Music,” which appeared on Willis’s 1999 album, “Bent.”
I was excited to learn that Adam Ben Ezra has a new album coming. He’s just released the first video from “Hide and Seek,” featuring the tune “Downtown Blues.” As always, the one-man band creates such a rich musical tapestry.
Here’s a great clip from “Chicago In The Rockies,” featuring the band performing “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day” - and a cool story of how the song came to be.
The Drum Channel recently shared this incredible clip of The Jazz Ministry, the supergroup comprised of Abraham Laboriel Jr., Abraham Laboriel Sr., Michael Landau, and Greg Mathieson. Here they are performing “GOE” at the Drum Channel studios.
Back in 2007, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones performed the Byron Bay Bluesfest. Here’s a great clip of them playing “Throwdown at the Hoedown,” with that great intro by Victor Wooten.
After we shared the video of Lari Basilio performing “Man in the Mirror” in September, I bought the album. In addition to her remarkable playing, Basilio enlisted a killer band featuring Nathan East, Vinnie Colaiuta, and Greg Phillinganes. Check out the title track from “Far More.”
Kinga Glyk released her new album, “Feelings” on November 1st. Here’s another video she’s put together from the album, with the tune, “5 Cookies.”
I was binge-watching videos with Tony Levin when this clip came up in the recommendations. In 1988, Eddie Van Halen performed at the tribute concert titled “Les Paul & Friends.” He was joined by Jan Hammer, Tony Levin, and Jerry Marotta. They rocked the house.
