Last year, we featured an incredible video featuring Abraham Laboriel and Pee Wee Hill, entitled “The Bass Walk.” Now they’re back with the follow-up.
We always love seeing a new video from Miki Santamaria get posted. Miki shared this about the clip: “Jamming to Stevie Wonder’s ‘Do I Do’ with some of the finest musicians in Barcelona (and also very good friends of mine)...”
Brazilian double bassist Walter Areia has a keen sense of rhythm and melody. In his latest video for his song, “Sem Paredes,” he puts his percussive style to use.
Yesterday, Kevin shared the news of the new Sons of Apollo album, which features a symphony performing songs from their debut album and a set of cover songs. The band just shared one of the cover performances: Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.”
Queen’s classical influence really shines on the intro to this song in a duet between Freddie Mercury and bassist John Deacon. Originally recorded for “A Day at the Races,” this clip of “The Millionaire Waltz” comes from a live performance at the Summit in Houston, Texas in 1977.
NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert usually forces the band to reduce their format to create a more intimate performance. Music whiz Jacob Collier didn’t exactly take that route, though it’s one of my favorite performances from the series.
On August 24th, Oteil & Friends took the stage at the LOCKN’ festival. The band, fronted by Oteil Burbridge, also included Duane Betts, Melvin Seals, Eric Krasno, Neal Casal, Jay Lane, Jen Hartswick, Nat Cressman, Alfreda Gerald, and Lamar Williams Jr.
There’s nothing like an Iron Maiden show. Here’s a video the band shared from their 2018 “Legacy of the Beast” tour. “Run to the Hills” is a great showcase for Steve Harris’ playing with the intro, his signature galloping bass line, and more.
Pomplamoose just released an incredible new cover video. This time around, they do their thing on Cake’s “Love You Madly.” Nick Campbell is laying down some groovy bass on this one.
Last year, Darryl Anders and his band AgapéSoul released their second album, “Conversations.” The album kicks off with this track, “Kite,” which includes perfect bass tone from Anders and a vocal performance from Zoe Ellis that feels like ear candy.
Thursday’s are for throwbacks, and we can’t think of a better way to participate than sharing some epic, old-school Rush. Recorded in 1975, here’s the band performing “Anthem,” with Geddy Lee rocking the Ric.
Rebecca Johnson sent me this video, and I was glad she did. Earlier this month, Rebecca took the stage with her band and laid down some serious funk on Rose Royce’s “Car Wash.” Dig that tone!
