Paul Gilbert’s “Behold Electric Guitar” was released earlier this month, and from what I’ve heard so far, it is fantastic – and pretty unexpected. Here’s the clip for the track “Blues For Rabbit,” with bassist Roland Guerin laying it down.
Karl Clews sent me this very cool video of him performing Stanley Clarke’s “Lopsy Lu”, but with a twist. Karl switches between all four of the headless, carbon-fiber neck basses in his collection, to compare and contrast the tones of these instruments.
My bucket list includes attending a GroundUP Music Festival one day. Here’s a clip they just shared of violinist/vocalist Andrew Bird’s band performing at this year’s festival, with bassist Alan Hampton (and one cool bass.)
We can always count on Zander Zon to share something timely, and epic, in the realm of solo bass arrangements. In this clip, Zander takes on something from The Avengers “Endgame” soundtrack.
The Claypool Lennon Delirium recently visited The Current studio to perform music from their latest album, “South of Reality.” Here’s Les Claypool, Sean Lennon, and the band performing “Blood and Rockets.”
It has been quite a while since we’ve been able to feature a new video by Dirty Loops. That changes today with the return of the band and a new video they just shared.
We’re stoked for the second album by The Fearless Flyers (and awaiting the vinyl version). Here’s another clip the band has shared for The Fearless Flyers II and Joe Dart. Joe really does let it fly on this one.
I love the “Jam in the Van” videos and just stumbled upon a great one by Butcher Brown. Bassist Andrew Randazzo drives the tune “Fiat” in this clip from the 2017 High Sierra Music Festival.
Zycopolis TV produced this video from the 2007 North Sea Jazz Cruise, which kicks off with Marcus Miller sharing a great story about how Herbie Hancock’s “Head Hunters” was such a game-changer for him. Then the video shifts between interviews and music with a who’s who list of musicians.
Tedeschi Trucks Band made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, and there’s a new bassist in the mix. In this clip, Brandon Boone lays down the low end, following Tim Lefebvre’s departure from the band.
