They’re back! After taking a week off, the bass hero trio of Steve Bailey, Victor Wooten, and John Patitucci will be hosting another free Zoom webinar. This time, they’ll be talking to some of the most revered music directors in the world.
Thundercat took part in the “Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life” concert last year, and performed his tune, “Them Changes.” He was joined by two backing bassists - Adam Blackstone and Dwayne Moore - and guitarist John Mayer.
Lawson Kennard sent us this incredible video featuring the trio of Adam Blackstone, Wayne Moore and Thaddeus Tribbett performing a tribute to Derrick Hodge. While the performance is fantastic, I really enjoyed hearing Derrick’s story and influences at the end of the clip.
Adam Blackstone is not only a monster bassist, he’s an amazing musical director. Currently working with pop stars like Justin Timberlake and Rihanna, here’s a great video of Jill Scott from VH1’s SoulStage with Blackstone laying down some serious groove. The song arrangements are absolutely killer, too.
