Evan Marien and Dana Hawkins are back, and this video changes things up from ones we’ve seen from the duo in the past. Joined by J3PO, “Anybody Else But You” flat out grooves. The song is part of their upcoming album, “Parallels”.
For years, we’ve called these two the Dynamic Duo. And so it was a thrill to see bassist Evan Marien and drummer Dana Hawkins back with some new material and videos. Here they are (with Mario Camarena) performing “Bouncin’”.
It has been a while since we’ve featured a video by Evan Marien. Time to fix that. In this clip, Evan plays along to his latest track, “Heart Glow“, “along with some extra licks and chords.”
Evan Marien has just published a new transcription book of his playing, including his original compositions and bass solos from other works. The bassist transcribed all of his own playing for players who want a new challenge.
Drum master Virgil Donati has released “Ruination,” and it’s filled with unreal musicianship blurring the lines of fusion and progressive music. Bassists Junior Braguinha, Anton Davidyants, and Evan Marien contributed to the record.
Mitch sent me this video the other night, and he was quite excited about it. So was I. Here’s Evan Marien performing Jaco’s “Continuum.” Like the video we shared by Evan earlier this year with his performance of “Havona“, he once again uses his Supro Huntington short scale bass for the track.
It is exciting to see the videos coming regularly from one of our favorite duos. Filmed during their masterclass at Musicmaker in May, here’s Evan Marien and Dana Hawkins playing “Cali.”
The duo of Evan Marien and Dana Hawkins released their latest album, Collection Volume 2 last month. In celebration of the new record, they just shared this video for the track “Turnaround.” The new album is available on .
Simply put, Evan Marien is a very exciting bass player. The composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist grew up in Illinois, but Brooklyn is now his home. And yes, he’s super active on YouTube and pushing his own projects, but you may not know that Evan was also the last bassist to work with the legendary guitarist, Allan Holdsworth. Evan attended Berklee...
We love it when these two get together to record a new video. Here’s bassist Evan Marien and drummer Dana Hawkins doing their thing at Man Made Music Studios in New York. The tune is “Glacier.” If you’re in Europe, you’re in luck. The duo is going on tour in May. Evan has the dates on his website.
Back in 2012, we featured what went on to be a very popular video by Evan Marien covering the Jaco Pastorius tune, “Havona.” (We later published the transcription for Evan’s arrangement.) Now Evan is back with a new version for 2018. This time around, he’s playing a Supro Huntington short scale bass.
I’m really digging the live videos Evan Marien and Dana Hawkins have been sharing from their Mondriaan Jazz performance. In this clip, the duo performs “Flashes,” which appeared on their Collections EP. Evan has made the full show available via Bandcamp.
