I love it when bassists share their inspiration – the players and lines that stick out to them over their lives. Pitchfork posted this incredible video with Thundercat, who breaks down some of his favorite lines and players (and more).
Thundercat is set to release his latest album, “It Is What It Is,” next month and is currently on the biggest headlining tour of his career. Last week, he performed “Black Qualls” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
