A big happy birthday to one of the legends of bass, Anthony Jackson. We’re celebrating today with this video of the Hiromi Uehara Trio Project’s live performance of “Dancando no Paraiso” at Jazz à Vienne in 2011. Smoking!
Bassist and No Treble reader Lukas Pamminger sent us this video of a new project he’s in called “Fluffy Ruffles.” These guys are bringing some serious old-school funk. Dig it!
Cody Wright shared this video on Facebook saying, “This was a career highlight for me!” This video was recorded as part of Vic Firth’s VFJams LIVE! series, and features Peter Erskine and the band performing the drummer’s tune, “Hawaii Bathing Suit.”
Bassist and vocalist Sharon Renold shared this video of her original tune, “Open Letter.” This laid back tune offers up some killer bass tone and musical textures.
Mohini Dey recently shared this exciting video of her performance with guitarist Evgeny Pobozhiy and his tune, “Road to the Himalayas.” I’m really digging this track, and I especially loved Mohini’s solo around the 3-minute mark.
Dead & Company took the stage at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA. earlier this month. This clip from the second set of show #2 features on great jam, backed by bassist Oteil Burbridge.
Tim Lefebvre shared this on Twitter saying, “This one time gig led to many good things.” That gig was a date on Late Night with David Letterman in 2012, with Donald Fagen. It is cool to see Tim along with his other bandmates in Wayne Krantz Trio!
I’ve been revisiting the excellent Black Dub record that was released back in 2010 and exploring more videos by the band. In this clip, the band performs “Last Time” live. Jim Wilson, who toured with the group, plays bass on a tune that features the great Brian Blade on drums.
Our friend Nenad Vasilic sent us this spectacular video performance of J.S.Bach’s “Sarabande” from “Cello Suite No.2,” which he recorded on old vintage Jazz bass.
May was a huge month for bass videos on No Treble. Here are the top 10 favorites we shared.
