Bravo Victor: Hallelujah

Jono Burgess sent us this video of his duo with vocalist Sophie Aked performing a tribute to the late, great Leonard Cohen. “This was the first song Bravo Victor performed together back in 2015,” Jono shared. “In honor of the amazing musician who wrote it, we decided to film our version of it.”

PHOS and Fortheloveofbass: Retrograde

Ivo Schot has released the fifth video in his Fortheloveofbass series, and it may be my favorite. This time the bassist teamed up with Dutch singer-songwriter PHOS (AKA Eveline Vroonland) to cover the James Blake song “Retrograde”. Schot covers the harmonic elements with his bass and a full pedalboard while PHOS pours her syrupy vocals overtop.

Federico Malaman and Marco Venturini: At Last

Federico Malaman joined vocalist Marco Venturini in the studio to record their own version of “At Last.” The iconic tune was made popular by Etta James in 1960. We love the what these two did with the song, including Federico’s jam at the end.

Karl Clews always impresses with his all-bass covers. This time around, he gets down with the Bee Gees “Stayin’ Alive”. Bonus points for the apparel too.

Zander Zon: The Last of Us

Zander Zon took the theme from the action-adventure game “The Last of Us” and turned it into a solo piece for fretless bass. I’m not familiar with the game, but this theme by Gustavo Santaolalla – and reimagined by Zander – is some great music.

Diego Tarantino: Sir Duke

The last time we saw Diego Tarantino, he took the Pat Metheny tune “Better Days Ahead” and turned it into a lead bass arrangement. Diego just sent us his latest, where he applied his skills to the Stevie Wonder tune, “Sir Duke”. Diego nails the lead line and throws in a terrific solo on his ’72 Fender Jazz.
