Earlier this week, Joel Hoekstra, Dino Jelusick, Virgil Donati, and Tony Franklin participated in the Six String Salute virtual concert to benefit music industry crew members. Check out their take on Deep Purple’s “Stormbringer.”
Bassist, songwriter, and artist Treneti Brown has just released a video for her song “Immortal One,” which marks the first music video release from her debut album “Psalms of Saturn”. The downtempo track features a heavy bass line that helps create a mystical sound.
The Faces “Stay with Me” is one of my all-time favorites, thanks in large part to Ronnie Lane’s all-time great bass line. Here’s a clip of the band performing the tune on the BBC program “Sounds For Saturday” on October 26, 1971.
No Treble reader Teodoras Balciauskis reached out to us with a new video he’s recently recorded. “This one features multiple interesting bass playing techniques and blends in electronic music to bring together such an emotional piece,” he shared.
Scott King sent us this video, and we’re digging the creativity (and the tune!) “I wrote this tune based on the sound I heard from a washing machine... basically a really fast train groove (I actually slowed it down to 160 bpm),” he shared.
The great Melvin Lee Davis just dropped an epic video featuring a brand-new tune. Written by Davis and keyboardist Mike Cee Carpenter, here’s the funky “J-Dub Walkin’.”
The Immediate Family are rocking in this new video they shared a few days ago. And Leland Sklar is looking mighty cool in this one too.

Here’s another fantastic clip from The Beat-Club’s archives, which features Emerson, Lake & Palmer performing live at The Lyceum Theatre in London. By some strange coincidence, this performance of “Knife-Edge” was recorded exactly 50 years ago today.
Experience Hendrix has announced a new release coming on November 20th from the concerts Hendrix performed in Maui in 1970. Here’s some awesome footage of the band performing “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” - with Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell.
Juliaplaysgroove has a new U-Bass, and she’s putting it to good use. In this clip, she takes on The Supremes hit tune, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” and absolutely nails James Jamerson’s line (and the tone!)
Alex Browne tipped us to this awesome video of singer/songwriter Rex Orange County in the studio with the one and only Pino Palladino. The duo performed three songs from the guitarist’s 2016 album, “bcos u will never be free”.
