Our Twitter friend Russ Sargeant had a busy weekend, recording two live performances on Ustream, and showcasing his looping skills. “Beauty” was a favorite. The song, written for Russ’s wife, is performed on a 4 string fretted bass with looping. Well done, Russ.

Bela Fleck & the Flecktones: Spain

Josh, a bass trombonist (we’ll call that close enough) sent us this video of the Flecktones performing Chick Corea’s “Spain”. I’m sure he sent it because of the awesome bass playing by Victor Wooten, who takes over around the 2:30 mark.
