Well... for reasons passing understanding... the guys want me to learn another new 'featuring our bass player' tune for the second set this year. I love my background/support/anchorman job with Harwell-Grice Band, and would just as soon never be out front, but I love playing with these guys too, so in the spirit of being a team-player I've agreed to work out another tune for the second set. 

My go-to has been Robert Johnson's "Last Fair Deal Gone Down", but I'm working on Lowell George's "Willin'" for my second-set tune. Granted, it ain't the most wholesome message, but I think our core fans will dig it.  ;D

A song from my own repertoire, Gregory - and, as a former truckdriver, one close to my  heart!

Here's a band with two bass players and a drummer.  The video also has keyboards and/or midi as backing tracks.  The lines they've written work well together and include a lot of tapping.


Warning; speakers were harmed during the making of this video.

Wow, my playing will never be like that, even if I get good, but that's cool stuff...

Another version of Power covered with John McLaughlin-

I've been throwing combs at the computer screen, and it seems to be augmenting each listen.  Enjoy.

John McLaughlin's final tour with Jimmy Herring.  This video is of the entire show, which consists of Herring's band first, then McLaughlin's, then the combined bands.  The combined bands start at 2:17:00, which is where I started.  I'm about 28 minutes in, and so far it's wonderful.  Very good video, but for some reason the sound is a bit low; so crank your stereo.

Another Omnific song, this one has a guest musician- another bassist!

Wonder if they have a midi setup on their instrument(s) for the 'keyboard' sound?

I watched a live cut from a bar.  It doesn't look like the keyboard sound comes from their instruments.  Rather, they appear to be playing to keyboard parts that have been recorded or programmed ahead of time.

Just finished watching this interview with John McLaughlin from a little over two years ago.  It's absolutely wonderful.  He speaks with reverence about the music he was listening to when he was young, like Miles, Coltrane, and Hendrix.  Just wonderful listening to him talk about music.

George Benson, "This is Jazz: Vol. 9". 

Alluring from the start, especially with the fleet fingered runs, all implied to have be tickling that old L-5 with the old school Charlie Christian pickup on the cover.  Wha-HA!  Magical hands let free to roam the whole fingerboard.  And while music is subjective, surely, this is the George Benson catalog that I prefer to drool over rather than his successful foray into cool jazz and covers, as adept as he may have been/be at that particular interface of R&B and jazz. 

Regardless of mien, Mr. Benson is an incendiary, dynamic musical force who is always ready to astonish.
