Larry Graham jams with 10 Danish bassplayers

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites YouTube Preview Image

In connection with Larry Graham and Graham Central Station’s concert November 6, 2011 in Amager Bio, Copenhagen, Larry Graham wanted something extra to happen during his bass solo.
So he contacted me (LG knows me from last time he visited Copenhagen where I interviewed him and also joined him on stage – see link below) and asked me to assemble 10 bass players than would join him on stage for an improvised bass jam.

Needless to say , it wasnt hard to find volunteers, we could have been 20 on stage!
Every versatile bass player over the age of 25 knows Larry Graham and is on some level inspired by him
But there was only room for 10 plus Larry and his band.
What a blast! When I looked around I only saw ear to ear smiles on my colleagues faces:-D

Bassplayers from left to right:

Morten “Jay” Jacobsen
Mikkel Risum
Nikolai Wolf
Christian Grønborg-Veitner
Nicholas Findsen
Mogens Palsbøl
Maciej Szymczynski
Henrik West
Bo Stief
Thomas “MarloweDk” Risell

pudsy440: has any other member here noticed that playbassnow loads faster than it used to?? I'm finding it much faster lately, I haven't changed anything computer wise. Just curious. :)

MarloweDK: Well, i use different fx depending on the gig,and sometimes nothing at all. You can get far with just a octaver and autowah. Maybe add a fuzz/distortion of some kind

niftywiz: Sir..plz advice me a Effects processor for Live performance.

Mr Tibbs: WAZZUP Marlowe DK, Awesome Job with Larry Graham and the others...Keep Doin Your Thing Brutha!!!:-)

brainlock1: Hey Marlowedk, I don't know how I missed the Larry Graham meeting that you had back earlier in the year, (both the interview and actually playing his bass onstage) but I just wanted to say congratulations! I could see how much respect he has for you and what an honor it was to see that come to fruition! Thanks for all you do... Cheers. Bryan in Kentucky

MarloweDK: Finn: Its hard to find good Band in a box patterns, i usually just use the "Funk 70s style". Ill think about tutorials. In the mean time guest teacher Paul Wolfe has done some

soporific: Thnx @jazzperdk. That's an amazing video and Mr DK is the main basscat:-)

Finn: Hey Thomas, I just downloaded Band in a Box, and I'm having a little trouble making a good backing track, could you possibly do a tutorial, or maybe link me one that you found helpful? I also had some questions regarding tetrachords, is there a way I could message you about them? Thanks, Finn

Rain-baud: Sébu's still working on his website, this url works better (the first one is a dead link now)

Rain-baud: SEBU's website !! for french spoken bassists, beginner's lessons here
