Zander Zon is back with another incredible video featuring his Harp Bass. In this clip, he not only showcases his impressive ability to handle this beast of an instrument but also his arrangement skills once again on this performance of the Tears For Fears tune, “Mad World.”
Scary Pockets is back with a new video, and this one is tight. Bassist Joe Ayoub is coming through loud and clear and prominently featured with a groovy line on their funky cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark.”
Add LOCKN’ to my calendar for next year. After watching so many great videos from the festival, I’m hooked. Here’s a clip of Steel Pulse with The Soul Rebels and Marcus King performing a cover of the Grateful Dead tune, “Franklin’s Tower.”
We’ve enjoyed the various covers Martin Miller has done. In this clip, he takes on the music of The Police, with seven tunes. Once again, Benni Jud is handling the bass duties, as well as the backing vocals.
Here’s a phenomenal live clip from an Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman concert in 2018, with bassist Lee Pomeroy. ARW’s performance of “Heart Of The Sunrise” prominently features Pomeroy, including a fantastic solo.
Snarky Puppy visited NPR recently to record a Tiny Desk Concert, and it was epic. In addition to the great music, Michael League decided to get the staff and audience involved with creating a polyrhythm.
Abby Dart (mom to Vulfpeck’s Joe Dart), shared this video saying, “Vulfpeck shared this today and it was TOO funky not to share with everyone!” This live clip of Prince is definitely funky, thanks to Rhonda Smith and an all-star band.
It is always a good day when a new House of Waters video hits. In this clip, the band performs “Together,” from their latest album, “Rising.” As always, bassist Moto Fukushima plays an equally impressive and beautiful part on the tune.
I’m a big fan of The Main Squeeze (and Hendrix). So I was thrilled to see this new video. In this clip, the band takes on Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child.” Rob Walker is playing some fantastic lines behind the band.
The Who is releasing a new album on December 6th, but they’re pushing a lot of vintage content in the meantime. Here’s a 1968 clip of “A Quick One (While He’s Away),” which features a fantastic bass line by John Entwistle.
Here’s a fantastic clip of Richard Bona performing “Uprising of Kindness” at the RTL Jazz Festival. Backed by a string quartet and band, Bona adds his amazing vocal and bass skills to this beautiful composition.
The Independent Arts and Music Asheville had The Marcus King Band in their studios for the “Echo Session” series. The band, including bassist Stephen Campbell, put on quite a show.
