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”.
Cassius Lambert shared his latest video with us, and we were immediately knocked out by the sounds he created in this solo bass piece.
Dirty Loops’ “Songs for Lovers” series has been fantastic so far. Here’s their latest, with the tune “Coffee Break Is Over.” Henrik Linder is firing on all cylinders on this one.
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.
Act of Denial is a new melodic death metal supergroup formed by members of Koziak, Soilwork, Testament, Septicflesh, and the Night Flight Orchestra. The bass is handled by Steve Di Giorgio, who tears through riffs on his fretless on “Puzzle Heart”.
Jason Everett and Deep Energy Orchestra have just released a new video for the song “Call of Kali” from their latest album, “The Return”. The song features Trey Gunn on touch guitar and Fareed Haque on a guitar/sitar hybrid instrument.
The Martin Miller Session Band is back with another killer video, and a killer cover. In this clip, they take on Steely Dan’s hit “Josie”. Benni Jud not only handles the bass line but also the vocals.
I’ve shared music by Abhijith P S Nair and his band before, and every time I find another video by them, I’m completely blown away yet again. “Mahaganapathim” features stunning musicianship from the Indian Fusion group, which includes Mohini Dey on bass.
I’m always excited to see a new Cory Henry and The Funk Apostles video drop. Here’s one they shared a few days ago. The band – which includes Sharay Reed on bass – is absolutely on fire on the tune, “Testify.”
Derek Sherinian has a new solo album, “The Phoenix”, scheduled to release on September 18. He just released the video for the second single, “Dragonfly,” and it is amazing. Sherinian is joined by Simon Phillips and Ernest Tibbs in this clip.
Scott Devine from Scott’s Bass Lessons has released episode #2 of his “Bass Tales” series, and this one is a killer. From his house in Nashville, Billy Sheehan showcases his amazing bass collection, including the legendary P-bass, “The Wife”.
