"Power Fusion Bass Crunch Time"

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Microbass, Nov 30, 2003.


  1. OK, so aaaaaages ago I downloaded this track - apparently by Les Claypool + Vic Wooten.

    Now to me that seems like a VERRRRRRY strange duo, no?

    So I thought maybe it was Wooten + Clarke, becuase I see they have adone a few pieces together.
    But I'd like to be sure ;)

    who wrote/performed this?

    cheers :cool:

    No.
    Claypool is a big Stanley/Graham fan...no doubt Wooten is, too.
    ;)

    BTW, not sure of the tune you're talking about...

    It's on MP3.com (was?) under Bill Evans. So it's probably Bill Evans.
     
  4. LOL! OK, nice one, thanks! :D
     
  5. It's definitely 2 basses, and I've seen it attributed to Evans, Claypool and Wooten, Claypool and Stanley Clarke, etc. No idea who it's really by, but it's in the style of those bassists so it could be any 2 of them.

    Most likely a fake. There are lots of 'em.

    I'm listnin to it right now, and I've no idea, but it's cool. Even if it is fake, I like it.

    Eh,, the greasy slap groove parts I could see either Les or Stanley playing, but the smooth solo that goes over the top doesnt sound like either of them to me.
     
  10. I remember it being just some unfamous guy trying to promote himself. If nobody knows who he is though, he can't be promoting very well.

    I alaways woundered who that is myself. It sounds like an amature recorded that by himself and put it on kazzaa using famout bass players names or something. It's pretty cool though.

    when i saw this guy's page on mp3.com, i always wondered how he got so many downloads because i thought he sounded like a super hack. but, apparently there are people that thought his playing was cool:eek:
