RCVN I wanted to join Saturday,
Bass makes the most sense with other instruments - guitar I play solo, drums I have fun with backing tracks - but (for whatever reason, I have theories) I enjoy playing bass most with other peeps. Jams more so than band practice - but maybe that's just me.
RCVN Its easy to lose track of time in a music store.. Got my rig sorted at least. Ampeg PF210HE Bass Cab with a Trace Elliott Elf.
Bwahahaa, that's soooooo true! My sat's are usually spent entirely at music stores - whenever I say "only a hour", it's four or more hrs before I leave. That's a damn sweet rig, very nice - it'll take ya far :thumbup:
RCVN I'll have a listen, any other suggestions?
Well, now you've done it. I thought jazz was a dirty word around GT...though I'm no connoisseur, I like what I like (I seem to like groovey tunes or peeps who have great phrasing in/with their melodies) , Also, I typically enjoy albums and not artists (Emily Remler is an exception, I like everything she did).
If you havn't yet heard Chameleon, you are in for a treat - easy and fun groove on da bass
No bass in this one, perhaps not regarded as jazz, but...
The entire concert (Live at the Hollywood Bowl) is killer, Feels so Good is just amazing, but we'll leave Mr Meeks on the bass have the spotlight today.
The bass jazzcats rave about Jaco Pastorius - personally I don't get it, but this track was waaayyy ahead of it's time (loopers & fx)
Stanley Clarke is regarded a bass n jazz legend. It's not something I find alll that listenable, but you may enjoy.
Smooth, but interesting Piano jazz from Ryo Fukui
Sheesshh, I almost forgot Hugh Masekela- this whole album is ***ing great
I gots more if ya interested ...enjoy!
