Simon & Garfunkel with Pino Palladino: The Only Living Boy in New York

While preparing to interview Joe Osborn, I became borderline obsessed with this song. Originally played by Joe on Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water, the bass line has such a beautiful melody to it while holding down the harmony in all the right spots. Here’s a clip of the duo’s DVD with bassist Pino Palladino, who presents the line...

Paul Young: “Wherever I Lay My Hat” Live, with Pino Palladino (1985)

I never cared for the 80’s music scene (then or now). But when I listen to Paul Young’s recordings, I’m amazed how Pino Palladino‘s bass lines have aged so well, even if the rest of the music of that era hasn’t. Here’s Paul Young and company performing the laid back, fretless-focused “Wherever I Lay My Hat”, live in 1985 at...
