- Eddie Gomez gets interviewed on NPR. He played with Bill Evans, Micheal Brecker, and just about all the jazz heavies for the last 30 years, so check it out.
- The Roots get a new bass player. That has got to be a fat gig, plus being on TV and all that. The new cat, Mark Kelly certainly seems more than qualified. Check out some videos from his days at Berklee at the link.
- Adam Neely, aka Havic5 is doing what can only be described as a dope-ass breakdown of how to do chords on bass, what voicings sound good and why, inversions and arrangement tips. Collect the whole set and check it out. Molto Ridiculoso!
- Believe the hype. Esperanza Spalding live at Small's in NYC, pre-grammy.
