Bassists are WAY underappreciated

Within the last two or three months, after decades of playing guitar, I’ve begun playing bass in one of my musical projects (Borrowed Time).

Until then, my attitude toward bassists was, “fine, play the damn root on the one, after that, whatever.” 303 more words

Inspired by the Beauty of Nefertiti

Nefertiti was the album that introduced me to Miles Davis and to Tony Williams. This was the 4th album of the second great quintet (Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, Ron Carter, and Miles himself) and the last fully acoustic album of Miles Davis’ career. 419 more words

Bassists

Santana / Shaman

Like its predecessor, “Supernatural,” released in 1999, Santana’s “Shaman” no doubt was an attempt by Clive Davis to replicate the success of the former album. This 2002 release is another disc that I’ve heard in my effort to hear all of Santana and the solo projects from Carlos Santana (1947-), in a more or less chronological fashion. 650 more words
