    Check out the bassist beginning around 2:50. Is he really playing the arco passage? It doesn't appear so to me. Also, the overall bass track sounds more like electric bass than double bass. What do you think? I like the hat in any case.

    I see a big black inverted jazz bass in the background.

    That whole performance is lip-synced. The audio is identical to the studio recording which features Emory Gordy Jr. on electric bass and Edgar Meyer on double bass (arco).
