Marcus Miller and the gang at the Smooth Jazz Cruise have teamed up to bring us another jam-packed concert with more legends. Check it out and turn it up loud!
Live music is coming back, and bassist Travis Dykes gives us an inside look as a touring musician in his new series, “Doing That”. This VLOG provides an excellent perspective on what musicians go through.

The Legend, Stanley Clarke, is back with episode 3 of his “Bass Nation” Series. In this episode, there is some great history regarding the electric bass. There is also an interview section with Jack Casady and others.
Joshua Sailor is back with another great and funky isolated synth bass (and Linn Drum) track, from Michael Jackson's classic track "Thriller".
1983 was definitely a good year. A shift in music was happening. David Bowie and Nile Rodgers hooked up to produce one of the biggest records of the 80s, “Let’s Dance”. Here’s Carmine Rojas’s isolated bass track layered with synth bass.
In this clip, we hear the isolated bass track for the Bee Gee’s #1 classic, “You Should Be Dancing”. The tone coming from that P Bass is glorious, and Maurice Gibbs’s playing is rock solid on this tune. A great lesson on pocket bass playing!
It would be wrong to focus on Synth Bass and not include anything by Parliament-Funkadelic. Upon searching for some cool videos, I stumbled across the multitrack for the funk classic “Knee Deep”. Junie Morrison is laying down the groove. PHAT!
You asked for more Synth Bass, and we delivered. In today’s clip, we’re checking out Michael Jackson’s “Man In The Mirror”. Legendary keyboardist Greg Phillinganes handles bass duties on this tune. Greg is an absolute monster on synth bass!
My love runs deep for synth bass. Today’s clip comes from the one and only Stevie Wonder. In this one, we hear Stevie’s isolated Moog Bass on the classic track, “Higher Ground”.
Wayman Tisdale was definitely something special. He had a very unique style and tone. In this clip, we catch Wayman with the 5th Quarter Band, performing live in 1992.
