“That is a sound coming from heaven”

Paul Thompson meant a combined Fender Rhodes and real piano sound overlaid over each other, but here he’s talking about the five great bass players on one of my favourite albums, Donald Fagen’s “The Nightfly”:

From the Bottom: The Bassists of THE NIGHTFLY (1982)

And the next one should be interesting for singers as well, because she’s a legend herself:

From the Bottom: The Bassists of HEJIRA (1976)

Now if you’re a bass player, do yourself a favour and go and transcribe these bass lines yourself if possible. And in case you’re a singer/songwriter/poet, have a look and listen to Joni Mitchell’s iconic album. Love them both.

As always, thanks for reading, and/or viewing.
