Diego Tarantino is such a talent, and not only on bass. Here’s a video he’s just shared with us of his ukulele and bass cover of Jerome Kern’s “Pick Yourself Up.”
Diego Tarantino always impresses us with his videos. He’s shared a few new ones with us recently, and I really dig this one. Diego arranged Kurt Rosenwinkel’s “Use of Light” as a bass showcase. He plays both electric and double bass in the video (and piano).
It has been a while since we featured a video by Diego Tarantino. Time to fix that. Diego just sent me his latest, where he takes the John Lennon tune “Oh My Love” and arranged it for bass and guitar. Impressive, as always.
It is clear Diego Tarantino is quite the student of music. Here’s a video he shared with us recently of him performing a bass version of “After You’ve Gone,” based on the version by Django Reinhardt. Amazing musicianship on display!
We also love the videos Diego Tarantino shares with us. This time around, Diego takes on Fats Waller’s “Jitterbug Waltz” on double bass and bass guitar.
Diego Tarantino sent us another one of his excellent solo bass covers. This time around, Diego performs Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed,” using two bass tracks.
Diego Tarantino has shared another impressive video with us. This time around, Diego takes on Charles Mingus’s excellent “Self-Portrait in Three Colors,” on double bass, electric bass, and keys.
Diego Tarantino sent us one of his latest videos, and once again, he knocked us out. Diego took one of Django Reinhardt’s most popular tunes, “Nuages,” and turned it into an all-bass arrangement.
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.
Diego Tarantino shared this video with us, where he took the Pat Metheny tune “Better Days Ahead” and turned it into a lead bass arrangement. A few things struck me about this performance: Diego’s smooth playing, how much fun he is having, and how one of the greatest albums is on display behind him.
