Now this is what I call a ‘gold medal finish’. My first time at Metropolis Studios was a time I’ll never forget. Two days, 24hrs of tracking bass and various other things for the new The United Kingdom album. Check out the size of this bass too…?! It’s HUGE.
My new Jazz trio, The Afternoon Project, has its first gig in London on Sunday 11th March. We’re playing a bar in Soho, Norman’s Coach and Horses (I’m so close to Ronnie’s, I think it’s the next street). We’re playing two sets and I’ll be using my NS Omnibass because it’s light and portable. It still gives that great upright bass sound. It’s fantastic. Here’s a photo from my rehearsal the other night.
Never would I have thought I’d be the owner of an Alembic Classico electric upright bass but there you go. It’s honestly so magical and beautiful and I’ve not stopped playing it. I’ve got some videos on youtube to please check them out.
I hope to be gigging with it very soon, I’ll keep you posted. Time to get practicing anyway, yet another skill to learn…!
