Abstract Logix has some of the coolest videos, like this one. Oz Noy, Dave Weckl, James Genus, David Kikoski, and Brian Charette perform “Boom Boo Boom”, which is from Noy’s 2020 album, “Snapdragon”. What a killer band!
It seems that with each new video, Leonid Vorobyev’s band, Leonid & Friends, raises the bar. In this one, they did it again. Here’s their performance of “The Speck of Dust”, with the band backed by a symphony orchestra.
Ryan Madora is back with a new lesson, and this is a great one. In this clip, Ryan walks through how to play the great James Jamerson bass line to “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” by The Four Tops.
Wayman Tisdale was definitely something special. He had a very unique style and tone. In this clip, we catch Wayman with the 5th Quarter Band, performing live in 1992.
Rebecca Johnson shared this video with some exciting news: “First gig of 2021 last Sunday. Fun to play live again after far too long.” Armed with her Dean Edge Select bass, she and her band lay down the funk.
Here is one of my favorite videos ever, and I’m thrilled to share this piece of sweet nostalgia! In this classic clip from 1989, Stanley Clarke is seen here with Gregory Hines, on the Arsenio Hall Show.
Giovanni Scarabel shared this video on our Facebook Group, and it got a lot of attention. He took Steve Vai’s “Eugene’s Trick Bag”, from the movie “Crossroads”, and performed it on bass.
Nate Watts is definitely a legend in the game. In this clip, Nate sits down with Hartke for an in-depth interview. There are tons of gems and cool stories in this one!
We can’t get enough of Marcus Miller. He truly is the total package. In this 2012 clip, Marcus is seen here warming up before a performance in Japan. I’ve always wanted to know what Marcus plays to warm up, and this is perfect.
Scary Pockets are back with another fantastic cover. In this one, the band includes guest vocalist Ty Taylor and MonoNeon laying down the funky lines. Here’s their take on Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”.
Until now, we’ve only seen a fan-shot video of this master class performance at the 2018 Sligo Jazz. Federico Malaman shared this version of his performance of the Vulfpeck hit “Dean Town”, with Joe Dart.
I always love these behind-the-scenes videos in the studio. In this one, we see pianist Brian Culbertson in the studio with The Yellowjackets rhythm section: Will Kennedy and Jimmy Haslip. This clip is a clinic on drums and bass locking in the pocket.
