In today’s featured video, Richard Bona performs his tune “Dina Lam”, from the 2003 album Munia: The Tale.
While this isn’t the highest quality video out there, we couldn’t pass up the chance to feature it. Bassist Viaceslav Svedov took Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)” and Marcus Miller’s “Power” and mashed it up into a great solo bass performance.
Today’s special is “Memphis Soul Stew”, with about a half a tea cup of bass from Jerry Jemmott. Listen to the band move, watch the people groove y’all.
This is a clip from the Joe Satriani: Live in San Francisco DVD, in which Stu Hamm proves why he is among the bass greats. Starting with a bass arrangement of Satriani’s “Love Thing,” the solo soon morphs into Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”, and then “Country Music”. And don’t worry, the crowd isn’t booing him, they are “STU-ing” him!
Wow! Double bassist Marco Panascia and electric bassist Dario Deidda are really swinging in this great bass duet performance filmed in 2006. Thanks to Art Araya, who shared this video with us. Have a video you want to share? Drop us a note or post to our Facebook page.
Not long after Robert Trujillo joined Metallica, Time Warp interviewed him and asked him to showcase his “gallop” approach to playing. The slow-motion part is pretty cool. Thanks to our Facebook friend Steve Walser for submitting this video. [editor’s note: the original video we posted was removed for copyright reasons. This new video isn’t quite as interesting as the original,...
Marcus Miller just shared this video on Facebook from over the weekend at the Solidarity of Arts Festival in Gdansk, Poland. The group, which includes Miller, Leszek Mo?d?er, Alex Han, and Louis Cato, rips through a funkified version of the Beatles’ tune, “Come Together”.
Here is a classic example of modal jazz with the John Coltrane Quartet, featuring Jimmy Garrison on bass, McCoy Tyner on piano, and Elvin Jones on drums. Garrison takes an extended and intimate solo in the middle to add character to the song. Garrison had a long-standing relationship with Coltrane and played with him from 1961-1967.
The following video features the great, French upright bassist Renaud Garcia Fons playing a tune called “Berimbass”. This is from his CD, .
In the mood for some bass slapping? In that case here is Francios C. Delacoudre‘s tune “Boomerang”. I like the sound of his Luthman Supreme 4 bass.
Here’s bassist Miles Hancock, performing an original solo bass composition for the BOSS Loop Station contest.
Michael Manring shared this video, saying “I recently played on a tune for a cross-cultural rock project called Peelgreems… Cool stuff!” We agree! This track is from the upcoming album, due out later this year. The band includes Alexis Hadefi on guitars and vocals, Manring on bass, Hycarpi on vocals and Kenneth Schalk on drums.
