The Fearless Flyers shared some exciting news yesterday. The band is releasing an album from their live performance at Madison Square Garden Here’s a preview of what’s to come, with Joe Dart and the guys getting funky on “Introducing the Fearless Flyers.”
Ernie Ball Music Man has proven it gets funkier by adding to the Joe Dart Signature Bass collection. First is the original Joe Dart bass in an all-new black velvet finish to complement the original natural velvet. Second is the Joe Dart Jr.
Until now, we’ve only seen a fan-shot video of this master class performance at the 2018 Sligo Jazz. Federico Malaman shared this version of his performance of the Vulfpeck hit “Dean Town”, with Joe Dart.
Bart Funk Bass has shared a great clip with Joe Dart isolated on the Vulfpeck tune, “Disco Ulysses”. We always love the isolated clips, as well as anything by Dart!
Like most of us, Luke McIntosh became pretty obsessed with Joe Dart’s work with Vulfpeck. In the end, Luke transcribed 69 Dart bass lines and broke it all down in this video (with transcriptions).
Joe Dart has been a consistent favorite over the years, and 2020 was no different. Between his work with Vulfpeck, The Fearless Flyers, and Theo Katzman – as well as Ernie Ball Music Man reintroducing his signature bass – readers responded big.
The bass world lost a legend last week with the passing of Tower of Power bassist Francis “Rocco” Prestia. Now, a huge gathering of the bass community will be getting together to remember him.
Vulfpeck has a new album coming out, and we get to check out the first single. “LAX” was co-written by Joey Dosik, who handles the vocals and sax on the tune, along with Joe Dart on bass.
Vulfpeck performed live at Madison Square Garden in October 2019. The concert resulted in a 2-LP vinyl release, and Vulfpeck now has it up on Bandcamp. In celebration, the band posted this live performance of “Dean Town” from the concert.
I’ve played sax almost as long as I’ve played bass, so this video by The Fearless Flyers hits me on many levels. In this clip, the Flyers cover the Vulfpeck tune, “Adrienne & Adrianne.” Both versions feature the mighty Joe Dart!
Vulfpeck has announced a new album, “Inside the Mind of Woody Goss”, which features all of Woody’s Vulf compositions on one record. Here’s the video of the tune “Radio Shack”, with Joe Dart on the Joe Dart Bass.
The Fearless Flyers shared a new video in support of their upcoming full-length album, “Tailwinds.” If you’ve been following the band, hold on to your hats. This one is going to surprise you.
