Evan Marien x Dana Hawkins are back with a new music video for their song, “Kyoto”, which features Aaron Marshall from Intervals and Julian “J3PO” Pollack. I love how this duo has evolved, and the sounds they’re creating with this project.
David Pastorius shared this on Facebook the other day and it knocked me out. He and his band Local 518 recorded this rehearsal session, with the band tearing through the Tower of Power tune, “What Is Hip?”
We’ve featured some great videos of Janek Gwizdala using looper pedals before, but this is just next level. “Factor 1000” is a song built from the bass guitar and a plethora of pedals.
I’m still going down my Louis Johnson rabbit hole, and I keep finding cool stuff! In this clip from 1994, most likely in Japan, Louis looks to be holding a clinic of some sort.
Gabriel Severn’s mom Vivian reached out to me with a new video. In this clip, Gabriel explores another looping creation and using different bass notes under simple chords. We’re digging this sound!
Edie Brickell & New Bohemians performed “Stubborn Love,” from their latest album on the Tonight Show recently. It is so great to see the band once again, including hearing Brad Houser’s work.
The new project from Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak is called Silk Sonic, and they couldn’t have picked a better name. Their debut single is the ultimately catchy “Leave The Door Open,” which features some slick bass work of Brody Brown.
We’re still reeling from the news that we’ve lost one of the legends, with the news of Paul Jackson’s passing yesterday. We spent the day spinning records and watching videos, including this epic clip of Mr. Jackson jamming with drummer Mike Clark.
Following the announcement of Lake Street Dive’s new album, the band is getting the videos out there. Here’s a live take on the opening track of “Obviously”. Bridget Kearney lays down the solid grooves while also providing amazing backing vocals.
Our friend Bruno Migliari sent us his latest video, and it’s a beautiful solo bass performance. In this clip, Bruno performs his arrangement of Caetano Veloso’s “Trem das Cores”. I love how he incorporates the harmonics and vocals in this one.
Bart Funk Bass has shared a great clip with Joe Dart isolated on the Vulfpeck tune, “Disco Ulysses”. We always love the isolated clips, as well as anything by Dart!
It’s always exciting to see a new video from Martin Miller and his band. In this clip, they’re joined by Kirk Fletcher for a cover of “Get Lucky”. Benni Jud handles the bass and vocals, and I’m pretty impressed with his vocal skills while masked.
