Michele della Malva is helping us get into the holiday mood with a video he just shared with us. Check out this performance he named “Jingle Funkin’ Bells” (with a little bit of "The Chicken" thrown in).
Continuing our look back at 2019, here are the top 10 reader favorite albums for the year. This list covers music featuring Billy Sherwood, Billy Cox, Stu Cook, James Jamerson, Berry Oakley, Lee Rocker, Paul McCartney, Pino Palladino, Tal Wilkenfeld, and Pablo Elorza.
It’s the time of year when we love to reflect. We’re kicking this year’s “Best Of” lists with the top 10 reader favorite interviews and podcasts.
Relix just shared an epic clip of Gov’t Mule with Gregg Allman, Trey Anastasio, and Derek Trucks performing “Soulshine” at The Jammys in 2002. Gov’t Mule’s bassist Andy Hess was on the set, though the camera operators did their usual thing.
Adam Ben Ezra has released the second single from his upcoming album, “Hide and Seek.” “Deeply inspired by Richard Bona and other African music elements,” here’s the tune “Tumbada.”
Our good friend Julie Slick shared a fantastic (and beautifully shot) new video by her band, Echotest. The tune, “The Drift,” is from the band’s second album, “Le Fil Rouge.”
If you have some time on your hands today, you’re in luck. Joe Dart made an appearance at Berklee for a bass clinic, and we now can watch the full event. Joe talks about Vulfpeck, music, playing with drummers, and plays throughout.
It has been a while since we’ve shared a video by Or Lubianiker. Thanks to our friends at BassTheWorld, we have a new one to check out. In this clip, Or is joined by banjoist Avital Tamir in a performance of “Deus Ex Makineta.” The combo is incredible.
Aaron Gibson’s “Horror Films and Sunday School” was among my favorite albums released in 2019. For years, Aaron has matched his incredible music with incredible videos, but this one might be the best one yet.
Zander Zon and Tommy Lee Depp got together for Zander’s “Pandora’s Bass” series, and put together quite a video. This one features not only some incredible tapping but also some great musicianship by both.
YYNOT released their second album, “Resonance,” in September. Here’s the video for “Bully,” the third track on the record and another one of the band’s originals. Tim Starace really brings the thunder on his Ric on this one!
Sharay Reed is all about groove. Here’s a new live clip by Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles, who perform “Love Will Find A Way” at the Resident in celebration of Cory’s birthday.
