Latest from Corey:
A few days ago, Jambase shared this video of Prince performing at The Aladdin in Las Vegas. In this clip, Prince and his band - which includes Rhonda Smith on bass (and backing vocals) - perform the Led Zeppelin hit “Whole Lotta Love.”
Federico Malaman always knocks us out with his videos. In this clip, he doubles up to perform a stunning cover of the Ney Conceição tune “Resposta.”
Leland Sklar is making the most of this time of social distancing and giving back to the bass playing community. In this video, the bass legend shows us the bass line on the Phil Collins tune, “Against All Odds.”
We can always count on The Main Squeeze to deliver. In this video for “Little Bit,” the band (which once again includes Rob Walker on bass) combines some great videography and music.
Zander Zon just shared another video he did with Tommy Lee Depp. In this clip, the duo takes Alan Walker’s “Faded” and turned it into an incredible duo bass arrangement.
In today’s video, YYNOT is kicking it old school. They began as a virtual band years ago, and they’re revisiting their roots with this epic (virtual) cover of Rush’s “Fly By Night.”
We’ve lost another legend with the passing of Kenny Rogers yesterday. Many people don’t know he was a bass player, but he did hold down the low end for The First Edition from 1967–1976. Here’s a great clip of the band performing live in the early ’70s.
WATCH: Last summer, TTB performed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre along with Blackberry Smoke and Shovels & Rope. In this clip, the group brings together members of all three bands for this performance of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Sing A Simple Song” and “I Want To Take You Higher.”
We can always count on Leonid Vorobyev and his band Leonid & Friends to share some incredible covers, mostly from their favorite band, Chicago. In this clip, the band performs the Chicago tune, “Happy Man.”
I can’t open Youtube these days without spotting a video with Joe Ayoub. And, man, do I dig his playing. In this video, Pomplamoose takes Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day” and Lizzo’s “Good as Hell” and mashes them up into one fantastic arrangement.
Drum Channel recently shared this incredible video of The Jazz Ministry. The band, which features Abraham Laboriel Jr., Abraham Laboriel Sr., Michael Landau, and Greg Mathieson put on a master class in this performance of “QT?.”
I’ve always loved the music of The Crusaders, so I was excited to find this clip from their 2003 performance of “Street Life” at Montreux. “Ready” Freddie Washington lays down the groove on the tune.
