Figure out he chords to Eliane Elias' version of Estate with us! Turns out her version actually modulates down a perfect fourth at the B section but...it was still fun anyway! To contribute to my channel and music making efforts, click here: https://paypal.me/aimn
This afternoon, I hung out with my good friend, Tony Dumas at his place in Altadena. Tony is one of the best bass players in LA and I'm always honored to play with the man who has recorded with JJ Johnson, Nat Adderley, Cedar Walton, Billy Higgins, Art Pepper, Joe Henderson, Etta James, Freddie Hubbard, and so many more, not to mention tours with Sarah Vaughan and Carmen Mcrae! I know I have said in the past that I love a bass player who plays the root on beat one, etc., but in the right setting (especially an intimate one such as this), there's nothing quite like a creative and thoughtful accompanist in a bass player and no one embodies this more than Tony. Listen to the brilliant treatment he gives Jobim's "Once I Loved."
I love to play and sing this Jobim classic. Hope you dig it. Recorded using Earthworks SV33 Earthworks PM40 5'3 Hallet Davis Baby Grand.
