Marcello Giuliani - Bassist for Erik Truffaz

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by markjazzbassist, Apr 20, 2010.

  1. I love this guy. Great chops, feel, taste, Tone, and nice collection of basses :)

    I've getting really diggin on a lot of Erik Truffaz's jams lately, and I really love the way Marcello plays the bass.

    Anyone else wanna show some love?

    Been a fan since the Dawn album.
    Excellent music from a heavily Miles Davis influenced trumpeter.

    Not really into his arab\berber jazz hybrid stuff.

    No longer a slave to GC.
    I saw this thread title and realized that the name was familiar. I have a remix that Erik did of an Amon Tobin song and it was amazing. Checked out that first video and i'm floooooooooooored. this is excellent stuff. Sick groove on that first jam. Bassist holding it down. He even gets that "oooo this groove is too sick" face @3:31. love it. thanks for bringing this to my attention. too funky.

    nice! I had the cd's but I couldn't find anything in youtube! also surprising that Marcello is around! I hope they come to Mexico soon!
  12. Marcello's playing w Erik Truffaz is the bomb. Tight, punchy and with lots of space. Killer tone too. Love what he does with his Fender Jazz...

    I only own and have heard Face-A-Face (Live). It's a great record, but I'd be curious about what others recommend.
  18. start out with

    bending new corners
    the walk of the giant turtle

    those are great records. i also recommend

    arkhangelsk and in between.

    just make sure you get the quartet, his other records are different bands and different music. if you like the marcello stuff you need the quartet. all the records i recommended are so.
