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.
