Double bassist Lauren Pierce reached out to us (thanks to our good friend Jason Heath) to share this video with us. Check out this stunning performance of Zigeunerweisen for Double Bass Solo and String Orchestra.
Back in 1987, I bought John Scofield’s “Blue Matter” and listened to it nonstop. The combo of Gary Grainger and Dennis Chambers just knocked me out. So it was cool to see this clip of “So You Say” from Chambers’ “In The Pocket” video.
I rediscovered this video by Jimmy Herring Band over the weekend and watched it many times. The entire band just brings it on “Matt’s Funk.” Neal Fountain was part of Jimmy’s touring band at that time, and he lays down a tasty line.
Artem Golubev shared this video with us of his all-bass arrangement of Metallica’s “Orion.” He covers all the solos too. Worth noting: he filmed the video in the snow!
Philipp Rehm sent us this video he recorded with Dutch singer Tania Kross. Philipp described it as “bass / beat / vocal track,” and while it wasn’t what we expected, we really dig this sound.
In this clip, bassist Nicholas Johnson and guitarist Jabari Johnson start “the year off on the rooftop of The Potter’s House.” Nicholas’ playing is just flat out sick, with a big, fat tone.
No Treble saw a huge uptick in visitors in December, thanks in part to some killer bass videos. Here are your top 10 favorites of the month.
We’ve featured Adam Ben Ezra performing “The Busker” before, but this one is new and equally cool. It is always amazing to hear the sounds Adam can create.
No Treble was last redesigned about five years ago. In internet years, that’s a long time. No Treble was starting to show it’s age. No more. We’ve completely rebuilt No Treble from the ground up, and we’re thrilled to share this new version with you.
We recently featured a great Scary Pockets video with Tim Lefebvre anchoring the band on their take of “Valerie.” Here’s another one, with the band’s funky arrangement of Bob Marley’s “Is This Love.”
