yep, Akiko's great.
ahhh, love checking out some AJ in between lessons....
Are there any Cds of this trio?
Oh man that video is great, I love that album, never saw this.
The Smith with the gold control plate. Always wanted one of those.
They apparently weigh a ton- I remember someone on TB saying so after he tried Bill Dickens' one.
I love those Di Meola albums from the late 70s/early 80s with Jackson on them.
Check the Michel Petrucciani Trio on DVD with AJ and Steve Gadd. I just saw it last night, incredible.
one of my all-time fav's.
a side note, there's a great documentary done on Michel Petrucciani, forget the title but I believe I found it through Google Video. Was such a great artist.
The first Ken Smith bass I ever saw was one of those: Manny's had one in the window of their 48th Street store sometime in the late 70s/early 80s. What the hell did all those controls do?!?!?!
I recall it having a built-in envelope follower. Pretty wild at the time.
That would still be pretty wild nowadays I had the old Bill Dickens VHS where he spends ten minutes talking about that bass- he seemed completely enamored by it at the time.
here one more...
Cool! Interesting music and Anthony, of course, sounds amazing. I totally dig his tone in the first clip. He's one of the few guys that just totally integrates the whole 6 string thing to me, versus most guys who do the whole 'go up top for solos and ignore most of the capabilities of the instrument the rest of the time'. Anthony uses the whole axe!
AJ is a bass genius, IMHO. One that changed/changes the way we listen and think about bass. One of my true favourites, any day.
There's yet another precious AJ gem in Dave Weckl's "Master Plan", in a latin-flavoured song titled "Festival de ritmo", for those of you who haven't already listened to it.
Anthony Jackson spoke at Berklee yesterday and it was live streamed -- Bass Forum
This is wonderful, thank you for sharing!
Thank you for posting, I've been wondering/worried that he wasn't playing much over the last couple of years. It had been great to see him healthy and talking.
Here is the video of Steve Bailey playing AJ's Carl Thompson six, er contrabass:
Something I thought was strange:
In talking about the evolution of his 6's, the Carl Thompson #1 to his current Fodera #12,
they completely omitted his arguably first modern style 6 strings, the Ken Smiths.
Glad to see he's making his recovery. I was shocked when he said it had been two years since he'd last played.
