I have always liked Julie's performances, and you have to check this one out!
Nice work! And she pulled it off in a room with paint fumes. Doubly impressed.
I'm not saying she's "lip syncing", and she's clearly talented, but the very last part doesn't seem to jive with the recording.
Julie is one of my all time favorite players. I take heart whenever I hear bass players pushing the boundaries.
She seems like she'd be fun to hang out with.
Wouldn't let her friend paint my dining room, though.
Saw her with play with Adrian Belew's Power Trio a couple of times, once with her brother on drums - he is awesome too!
Very gifted players. And certainly not "conventional". And I know she works hard at it.
the lady doth shred...one of my top 5 players / influences.
She seems to spend a little time above the 5th fret too
( in cautious reference to a recent tiring thread )
And another example with fingers. I can't get enough of this slick...
Happy Holidays to my Talk Bass buddies!
She really is a great bass player and I like a lot of the stuff she is involved in as well.
If you only know Julie from the Adrian Belew Power Trio, you need to check out her solo stuff (two albums) and her current band EchoTest -- which is a collaboration with Italian bassist Marco Machera in which she plays a (Lakland) VI. Here's a show they did on her birthday last January, which starts as a trio but eventually adds, bit by bit, two guitarists, two vocalists, and a horn section -- plus a guest appearance by her dad on guitar at the very end:
EchoTest will be doing a CD-release show for their third album on 2/1 at Johnny Brenda's in Philadelphia, plus a few other TBA dates in the region before and/or after. Also, Belew has announced an extensive Power Trio tour of the US and Canada starting 2/28 in northern Virginia. So far only the first half-dozen dates, all in the Northeast, have been announced. Check his FB page for details.
She tears it up on Dinasour as well.
The Power Trio also used to do "Elephant Talk," with Julie two-hand-tapping her way through Tony Levin's original Chapman Stick part. Now that was something to see....
I'm gonna have to check that out, are there any videos of that?
She truly is a monster on bass in her own right.
Here's the best vid I could find:
Notice how she switches effortlessly between tapping during the verses to thumb-thumping and traditional fingerstyle in other sections of the song. Are you kidding me?
Edit after watching this again: Did she slip a pick in there for a few bars too?
Probably the best thing I've seen all year. Technically amazing. You'd think that Adrian Belew had sealed himself inside a cave, where he would never be influenced by popular music styles or conventions. He breaks every musical rule.
What I like about her is how naturally her playing flows.
It never looks forced, everything is where it should be.
That woman can play!
That dude cannot paint!
Thanks for that Lobster! This is amazing, yeah, thinking the same thing on the pick thing. Simply incredible.
Sometimes, you just gotta have a pick.
