David Dyson gives us an inside look at the madness that happens behind the scenes at the Smooth Jazz Cruise. Here’s an impromptu soundcheck jam with Dyson, Marcus Miller, Munyungo Jackson, and Peter White.
Marcus Miller is back again with another killer performance. We catch him in Paris playing the tune ‘Detroit’ from the “Renaissance” album. This is definitely one of my all time favorites from Marcus.
The No Treble team was blessed to be able to come together at the NAMM Show. Of course, that meant plenty of conversations about BASS. One of those focused on Tom Barney. Here he is in 1990, at Live Under The Sky with David Sanborn.
Armed with his Sire bass, we catch Marcus Miller in an intimate setting sitting in with Xavier Gordon’s band on the Sly Stone classic, “If You Want Me To Stay.” The band includes Ethan Farmer on bass as well.
When I was 14, my dad gave me a long list of bass players to listen and learn from. Mark King was one of the first names on the list. Still as funky as ever, King gives us an incredibly melodic slap solo on the classic tune “Love Games.”
A couple of weeks ago, we shared an interview with legends Sonny Emory and Nathan East. They got together for a few jams, and this one is a favorite of mine.
Richard Bona stopped at KNKX Public Radio in Seattle for a three-song performance with his trio. I loved the use of dynamics for this set!
With the NAMM Show coming up, I figured it would be fitting to visit some jams from past NAMM shows. Greg Phillinganes is joined by Donald Barrett, Alex Al on bass, Tariqh Akoni on guitar, and Dave Delhomme on second keys in this epic session.
Today’s video features two legends of the music industry. Virtuosos Nathan East and Sonny Emory sit down at Yamaha Japan and talk about this art form we call music.
Marcus Miller is definitely on the Mount Rushmore of bass players, and his arrangements are always something fresh. That is on full display in this clip. Playing the classic Miles Davis tune “Tutu,” Marcus put on yet another masterclass!
Crank Caviar has been dropping some fire content lately, including this new twist on a Phil Collins classic, “In the Air Tonight.” This cover features Antone “Chooky” Caldwell on 6-string bass bringing the heat! It’s locked in the pocket, for sure.
It’s no secret that Prince was a unique musician. Having worked with some monster bassists, Prince was definitely one funky thumper himself! We catch a glimpse of that in this live performance of "What's My Name?"
