Here’s a video of me playing a solo bass arrangement of Horace Silver’s Peace.
New solo bass piece I wrote with some angular harmony.
Here is a new tune that I demoed on my laptop with Danny Gotlieb on drums. I played bass and keys.
Here’s my interpretation of Ornette Coleman’s Ramblin’. I played the melody as a slap bass thing. Lots of energy with Mike Outram playing guitar.
This is a demo of an original composition that I wrote about my travels in Los Angeles. This will be one of the tracks I will include on my new CD, although not in this form, but recorded with live musicians. This track is mostly programmed, but I still managed to evoke a lot of energy with it. Just imagine how intense it will sound with a live band.
Here is another song I wrote that I dedicated to my daughter. Damon Brown played trumpet on this tune. Hopefully, I will record this with trumpet player Patches Stewart in the very near future as I wrote this with Patches in mind.
This track – Sonic Bop – is a real “finger twister.” This is one of the intense tracks from my CD Vanishing Point featuring Marcus Miller’s trumpet player Patches Stewart and keyboard wiz Peter-John Vettese. To download the PDF transcription of Sonic Bop go to Joe’s Cool Free Bass Stuff page.
