Sharay Reed is all about groove. Here’s a new live clip by Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles, who perform “Love Will Find A Way” at the Resident in celebration of Cory’s birthday.
We’ve featured a handful of clips from Sons Of Apollo’s 2018 live performance with The Plovdiv Psychotic Symphony. Here’s a clip from the show of the tune “God of the Sun,” with Billy Sheehan and the band rocking it out.
Bassist Panagiotis Andreou sent in a new clip, and you know that means I’ve watched this a bunch of times in a row. The world music master linked up with a young pianist from Armenia named Garik Sharoyan to record his song “Energy.”
I’ve been hooked on listening to Kenneth “Kaybass” Diggs lately. He has insane chops, but his sensitive touch is what makes the music. That’s on display in this clip where he does a gospel bass medley centered around “Amazing Grace.”
We’ve featured a handful of videos by guitarist Martin Miller, but none quite like this. In this clip, Martin is joined by Paul Gilbert in this live studio performance of Rush’s “YYZ.” Benni Jud drives some gnarly tone behind the band.
As bassist for the Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion band Consider the Source, you may not have expected John Ferrara to drop a Stone Temple Pilots cover. But that’s exactly what he just did.
Led Zeppelin’s classic “Kashmir” features an epic arrangement filled out with strings, horns, and a mellotron. David Sutkin, Lukas Kuban and Adrian Maruszczyk decided to take things the other way by rocking it out with two basses and a drumset.
In October, Vulfpeck packed Madison Square Garden for a concert. The band has just announced a live album from the show, and a video to go along with it. Joe Dart shows another side on this, helping with the vocals in this intro of “Back Pocket.”
South Africa’s Mabuta just dropped a live video for their new song, “She,” and it’s sure to get you grooving. The song kicks off with a chordal bass line by bandleader Shane Cooper before the horns come in with a laid back melody.
Here’s a great clip recorded during a 1993 rehearsal with Bootsy Collins and his band. It is cool to see Bootsy directing the group and playing his funky lines. Check out his reaction around the 4:05 mark to Bernie Worrell’s epic clavinet run.
This is one of those funk songs that is just so fun to play. “Skin Tight” was a hit in 1974 and it holds up thanks to the bass line by Marshall “Rock” Jones. Here’s a clip taken from the Dutch TV show TopPop.
Scott Devine of Scott’s Bass Lessons put together this video back in March, which covers what he considers the best 20 best bass lines of all time.
