The String Emporium (they are sponsors for both the blog and the podcast) has recently posted a set of high quality videos featuring performances from notable bassists on instruments available at the String Emporium.
Wan Bernadel Bass, Steve Laspina, ‘Oleo’
‘Oleo’ is a “rhythm” tune that was written by Sonny Rollins, in 1954 and recorded with Miles Davis. Danish bassist, Neils-Henning Orsted Peterson, really put this one on the map for bass players when he recorded the tune with Joe Pass’ record called: Chops! Steve Laspina keeps the chops tradition in true form with his rendition of Oleo. (Chris Champion, guitar.)
See the complete set of these videos at the String Emporium video page on their website.
