My good friend Jackie Clark shares some fantastic live videos regularly on Instagram. Here’s one of my favorites. Jackie makes his Sire V7 Vintage sing with some seriously tasty lines on the Bill Withers tune, “Lovely Day.”
Kinga Glyk’s “Tears in Heaven” video has been viewed nearly 3 million times in the six years since she first shared it. She just posted a new version, which is slowed down from the original but just as beautiful.
Make Weird Music was started in 2014 by guitarist Anthony Garone. They just dropped a new video yesterday featuring Garone with Morgan Ågren on drums, Paul Hanson on electric bassoon, and Michael Manring on bass.
Our friend Tony Senatore sent us the latest video he created with guitarist/vocalist Alan Lo Presti. In this clip, the duo rocks out to Night Ranger’s “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me.”
Our friend Ben Titus sent us this video of his Amplified Artist Sessions live performance. “Someone In Your Life” is a beautiful piece for bass and vocals.
Stuart Clayton published “The Plectrum Bass Book” earlier this year. Yesterday, he dropped this video of him playing along to Sly Stone’s “I Get High on You” - one of the earliest recordings by the great Bobby Vega.
Tedeschi Trucks Band’s new “I Am The Moon” albums are amazing. A week or so ago, the band appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Here’s their performance of one of my favorite tunes, “Soul Sweet Song,” which is a tribute to Kofi Burbridge.
No Treble contributor Brittany Frompovich has had a lot to overcome over the past year or so, but she’s back to gigging, including her work with Ashleigh Chevalier. Here’s a great clip of the duo performing “Burnin’ Down.”
I love it when Playing For Change drops a new video, and they did just that this morning. In this one, over 40 musicians from 13 countries got together virtually to record a beautiful version of U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”
NPR just dropped their latest “Tiny Desk” video, and this one is killer. Endea Owens, the house bassist for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, visited the office with The Cookout to perform five tunes.
Drummer Yussef Dayes and his band performed a live set at the Joshua Tree, and the band debuted the video earlier this month. Rocco Palladino (Pino’s son) lays down some sweet bass lines behind the band, and he takes the spotlight on “Golden Hour.”
I’ve always loved the Sanborn Sessions. I don’t know how I missed this episode, but it’s better late than never. Kandace Springs joined Dave and the band to record “Love Got In The Way,” with Ben Williams laying down some funky bass with a fat tone.
