Listen to the bass…

Stumbled upon some videos with killer bass lines again lately – and here are two three of them. First, a cute one (and females seem to like it because of the man depicted there) of singer/bassist/professor Esperanza Spalding, with herself as main actress:

Esperanza Spalding – I Can’t Help It

Then, a duo. One of the greatest guitar players of all time, Joe Pass, but listen to Red Mitchell on bass on this one (which is again one of my most favourite songs ever):

Joe Pass & Red Mitchell – Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise (live)

Oh, and you probably knew already that Michael League from Snarky Puppy is a killer bass player also, didn’t you? Here’s some ‘making of’ of one of the songs from their latest album “Immigrance” which should be out right now:

Snarky Puppy – Xavi (Behind The Scenes)

Love that African polyrhythmic vibe of this one – the drums, the handclaps, everything. Oh, and the cats of course!

That’s all for now folks – and it’s all on my wishlist at the big dealer’s place…

As always, thanks for reading / watching / listening.
