Earlier this month we featured Melissa Petitto in our Reader Spotlight. A few days ago, Melissa reached out to us to share her new video, which includes Snarky Puppy keyboardist Shaun Martin, drummer Flaviano Pennisi, and Melissa on vocals and bass. The trio performs Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground.”
YYNOT has been hitting the road lately, performing their original music and epic covers of Rush tunes. Here’s a recent video from one of their live performances, where they take on Rush’s “Beneath, Between, and Behind,” from “Fly by Night.”
Here’s a fantastic clip of John Patitucci and his Electric Guitar Quartet (featuring Adam Rogers and Steve Cardenas on guitars, and Nate Smith on drums.) The quartet performs “Four in One” live.
Keyboardist/vocalist Alina Engibaryan released “We Are” in February 2018. The band, which includes Michael League on bass, Chris Potter on sax, and Kendrick Scott on drums just released the video for the track, “Doesn’t Seem So Real.”
Brad Russell sent us his latest video, and while it is short, it is full octane. “Here’s a different take on the fusion tune ‘Got a Match’… Some Van Halen meets Chick Corea but played on bass!” Brad shared.
Stuart Clayton is publishing so much content, like this “Giants of Bass” entry focusing on the style of the great John Paul Jones.
Back in 2014, we featured a popular video by La Banda de Arturex, thanks to Didier Parra sharing it with us. Didier emailed us again with another funky tune he recorded with the band during the same session.

We’re proud to present a video premiere from the Indian fusion band Deep Energy Orchestra, which features Trey Gunn on Chapman Stick, Selvaganesh on percussion, and Jason Everett (aka Mister E) on bass.
I’ve been spinning Khruangbin on vinyl a lot lately, which set me on a path to find more videos by the band. I found this one of the band performing on NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk Concert” in 2018. Laura Lee and the band didn’t disappoint.
