No Treble reader and Nashville-based bassist Austin George Solomon shared this video with us, featuring his tune, “Ventnor Avenue.” The trio includes Grant Garland on Rhodes and Jordan Perlson on drums. I dig the bass tone and anything with a Rhodes piano!
Spyro Gyra brought some joy during this time of isolation with this virtual video they shared last week. The band decided to put together a medley of early songs from their career, with “Shaker Song,” “Catching The Sun,” and “Morning Dance.”
The members of the original Joshua Redman Quartet – Redman, Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride, and Brian Blade – reunited this year to record a new album, which is due to release on July 10th. Here’s a sneak peek of RoundAgain, with the track “Father”.
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.
We've said before: we're so thrilled with Leland Sklar’s Youtube videos over the past few months. Here's one he posted a few days ago after being asked to perform a cover of “Easy Lover” (he had the chart).
Back in April, I discovered the REO Brothers band and their incredible cover of “Penny Lane.” I’ve finally gotten the chance to go through more of their videos, and while they’re all fantastic, I really enjoyed their cover of “Something.”
Zander Zon has a new Mayones bass, and so he’s changing things up with this new video. Strung with regular strings (vs. his typical piccolo bass set-up), we get to hear one of his incredible bass arrangements with a new sound.
Best of Office Hours recently had Thundercat on as a guest for a “Guess the Bassline” segment. We won’t share any spoilers here, other than to say this is pretty hilarious.
One of the best aspects of the quarantine period has been all the amazing collaborations. Case in point: this video put together by monster bassist Taylor Lee. Hadrien Feraud, Steve Bailey, Bubby Lewis, and Mike Bendy all play a big part in this collab as well.
It has been a while since we featured a video by Diego Tarantino. Time to change that. Diego shared this clip, and it caught our eyes – and ears. Check out his incredible solo bass performance of “Norwegian Wood” and “With A Little Help From My Friends”.
Steely Dan’s “Peg” is one of my all-time favorite tunes, thanks to the incredible bass line by Chuck Rainey. Rebecca Johnson and her band performed the tune live back in January. As always, Rebecca knocks us out with both her playing and singing.
Jorge Roeder is releasing his debut solo album, “El Suelo Mio”, on July 3rd and today we’re proud to premiere this performance for “I’ll Remember April.”
