Inside Story (Richard Niles) - MP3 Recording


I recorded this bass track for guitarist/producer/composer/arranger Richard Niles in my home studio (otherwise known as The Bassment). For this track I played my Ibanez SRSC805. It has a nice tight midrange the works well on a very active bass part such as this. I'm including page one of the chart if you want to play along. Enjoy!

Maiden Voyage for Double Bass Trio - Sheet Music

An arrangement I did of the Herbie Hancock classic Maiden Voyage for Double Bass trio. Some arco passages that get up into thumb position but generally a fairly easy read for Beg/Int bassists. A show of thanks to a former student of mine, Tom Lane, who suggested the chords for the interlude section.

Here is the music for the opening cut from my album Ritual. The track features a wonderful solo by master musician Ernie Watts. I've included the rhythm section & Bb parts. Have fun! 



Les Is More ~ Rhythm & Horn Parts - Sheet Music

If you like your jazz with a dose of funk (or your funk with a dose of jazz) this one's for you! Recorded with a group of L.A.'s finest (and yours truly on bass), this one's sure to be a crowd-pleaser and a band favorite all in one. I wrote this for a sax player named Les Rose but, unfortunately, it never made it into his book. I am honored that is the opening track on Dave Anderson's upcoming album! 





After The Storm - Rhythm & Tenor Sax parts + Track!

Here's a true "blast from the past"! From my first album Gig Bag comes the track & charts for "After The Storm"; a moody piece (as the title might suggest) with a drum feature at the end that was wonderfully played on the record by Bob Harsen. Dig it!





Rocctones - MP3 & Chart

My good buddy and rhythm section mate in the EH band, Ric Roccapriore, sent me a drum track. I added keys, upright bass, and electric bass, and a tune was born. A medium swing jazzer in the "Blue Note" tradition. For you electric bass players, there's a nice unison line in the "B" section to give you a challenge. Enjoy, folks!
