with bass solo!
Thanks, the video goes well with this mornings coffee, who is the bassist? And those guts sound "mellow"!
I have no idea who the bassist is... but his solo "face" is great.
i think the bassist is great. Very yummy tone!
The clip is from "The Legends of Jazz Guitar", I think vol.1. I forget who the drummer is, but it's Harold Mabern on Piano and Arthur Rhames on bass. Great DVD. Did you guys notice the mic between the bridge feet too?
I absolutely missed it.... he has a cool, unique sound though- maybe in part to the mic placement?
Oh man, I love that solo... no thumb position at all ! Nice down in the pocket and still swingin'! never heard of this cat but I am going to check him out...
That was some great playing. Awesome find.
If that was from the "Jazz 625" broadcast, which I think it was, then the bassist is Arthur Harper (along with Harold Mabern on piano and Jimmy Lovelace on drums). That quartet was touring around Europe in the spring of 1965, and this show was released on video tape (although it seems kind of hard to find).
What great playing! I can't believe this bassist isn't better known, but then again I don't know how active he was. Even Todd Coolman omits him from the ridiculously long list of bassists at the back of "The Bass Tradition" (and there are a lot of names on that list I've never heard of).
