Jonathan Herrera posted this on Facebook with a two word comment: “You’re welcome.” Here’s a fantastic isolated bass and drums clip of D’Angelo’s “Chicken Grease.” Pino Palladino is a bad man!
I missed this video back in 2020, but I was glad Karl Clews reshared it on Facebook recently. Karl teamed up with drummer Richie Dittrich for this epic cover of Alain Caron’s “D-Code.”
In 2019, Quincy Jones was honored in Paris, with nearly 100 musicians paying tribute. In this clip, Marcus Miller and Richard Bona team up with Dirty Loops’ Jonah Nilsson on vocals to perform “Billie Jean.”
Lake Street Dive finished recording “Fun Machine: The Sequel” and went straight to The Sultan Room for an unannounced show. They just dropped their first video from the performance, with the band performing Carole King’s “So Far Away.”
Since Snarky Puppy dropped “Empire Central,” I’ve been listening to it a lot (and anxiously awaiting the vinyl to arrive). They just released another video for the session, with Michael League and the band getting down on the tune, “RL’s.”
Scary Goldings just dropped a new live video, and it grooves. Here’s the band, with John Scofield, MonoNeon, Larry Goldings, Lemar Carter, Jack Conte, and Ryan Lerman performing “We Come in Peace.”

WFUV shared videos of the Marcus King Band rocking the Rockwood Music Hall in September. Here’s one of my favorite videos from the set, with the band performing “Blood on the Tracks.” Bassist Stephen Campbell keeps it rolling on this one!
Jaz Moss runs an online school for bass players, and he recently shared this cool video with us on his list of the top 15 blues bass lines of all time. Jaz breaks each one down.
Bassist Audun Ramo and his band An.Kara are gearing up to release a new album on November 26th, and they’ve dropped a few performance videos to prep fans. Ramo’s slap technique and melodic sensibilities help drive the music.
Marcus Miller never ceases to amaze us. In this clip from “Jazz in Marciac,” Marcus digs deep into his catalog of tunes and pulls out the classic, “3 Deuces,” from his “M2” album.
Tedeschi Trucks Band performed at The Beacon Theatre on October 8th, and once again, cameras were rolling. In this clip, TTB performs a soulful rendition of Harry Styles’ “Sign Of The Times.”
