  • Double bass

    Anyone else here love double bass? How about some fave tracks.

    I'll kick off with Marco Di Marco Par Avion, love that riff. Kinda reminds me of my youth in the early 80's, there is something very Stingrays about it used to see them regular. Still love em, very underated inmho  
    For folks sake!

    Get Down by Gene Russell is a quite groovy example with a strong emphasis on the double bass... First that springs to mind anyway, that and anything with Ron Carter on: Thief In The Night maybe...

          I have the second LP on CBS ('Moondog 2' - very creative&#33 which isn't a patch on the first. Everything else is silly money. I think the key to the first is that it's his compositions performed by an orchestra (and Ron Carter, etc.) rather than just him with his homemade instruments. There was a record doing the rounds a while of him with a Scandinavian ensemble that sounded promising. Did anyone pick that up?

            Eddie Gomez - Downstretch

            Used to have a copy (got from Steps Ahead in Leicester - big up Manjit and Alpesh), it got pinched though, never seen it since.

            And of course, anything by the Stray Cats.

                    Pretty much anything by the Young Holt Trio does it for me ....and as for the Stingrays I&#39;m off to find a copy of Surfin&#39; Bird and shove a microphone down me throat in honour of a misspent youth.

                      It&#39;s really quite out of character for me, but the only double bass things springing to mind are hip-hop tunes which sample double bass:

                      Eric B &amp; Rakim - Juice (Know The Ledge)
                      A Tribe Called Quest - Buggin&#39; Out
                      Tranquility Bass - They Came In Peace

                      Err, I&#39;ll get me coat...

                        Speaking as a bass player myself, I think it&#39;s a shame there&#39;s so little stuff out there that features it as a solo instrument.

                        I like that Telemusic track &#39;Bass In Love&#39;, which sounds like Joss Ackland attempting to seduce someone, and I&#39;m sure Johnny Hawksworth&#39;s done some good solo bass stuff for the libraries.

                        Although not a solo, I also really like the double bass on the original Amphonic recording of &#39;Chelsea Chick&#39; - I don&#39;t know whether it was recorded with a pick up or not, but the sound is brilliant. Whoever engineered that session really deserved his fee&#33;

                          I love the bass intro in &quot;Incidental backcloth&quot; featured on KPM&#39;s &quot;UNDERSCORE&quot; lp.
                          And if we&#39;re talking electric bass, I digs the intro on &quot;Acquital&quot; featured on KPM&#39;s &quot;DRAMATIC BACKGROUNDS&quot;.
                          This track was used in many Eddie Romero horror films and also featured on the Sid Davis 1970 drug scare film &quot;THE PILL POPPERS&quot;.

                            Is it Danny Thompson you hear on a lot of the late 60s Joe Boyd productions for Island (Nick Drake&#39;s Bryter Later, John Martyn, etc)?Lovely sound he has on those records. And with Pentangle, too...&#39;Light Flight&#39; has to have one of the best upright basslines in the business.

                            And whatever you think of the leader, Jamie Cullum&#39;s bassist is pretty good in a live setting. Geoff Gascoyne...The memory of him holding down &#39;Light My Fire&#39; while Cullum &amp; his drummer switched places after tearing up a few standards was quite impressive, actually...

                              The first track I thought of was &#39;Hot Flush&#39; by Red Snapper. Proper bo, I tell thee.

                              Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...
