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.

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: Better Days Ahead

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.
