All roads lead to James Jamerson, this iconic bass player is the cornerstone of all modern pop, R&B and soul, this is the guy that influenced the guys (gender neutral “guys“ gals etc) that influenced the guys that influenced the guys you listen to (whether you know it or not).. steeped in jazz his melodic and fluid bass lines changed the game and though there were notable contemporaries (Bob Babbitt, Wilton Felder) his performances elevated the instrument in the pop format for all time, a list of the people he influenced would be truly staggering.. I chose the title track from Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On (1971) as it was the first album he was given proper credit on (as a session player for Motown he played on 30 Billboard number one singles as well as 70 R&B chart toppers.. a record not likely to be broken anytime soon) His inimitable performances moved from subtle and solidly anchored to downright jaw-dropping (hats off to anyone willing to take on his performance in Stevie Wonder’s version of For Once in My Life) as a bassist it’s taken me far too long to honor this giant of the instrument so here’s my loose take on James Jamerson, the greatest bass player of all time🥇

🐧⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Album: Diamond Eyes
Pressing: Limited Edition (Quantity Not Specified)
Topic: Definitely one of my top 5 favorite bands of all time. Diamond Eyes is great record and probably one of the best sounding vinyl I own. All the instruments standout especially Chino's singing/ screeching gets so down. My favorite tracks have got to be 976-Evil, Rocket Skates, Beauty School and Diamond Eyes but in general the whole album is great, emotional, and powerful. Can't wait for the new album this year. 👍
