Today we’re sitting down with one of the groovers and shakers behind the UK’s funk bass scene… Paul Turner!
In the hierarchy of Jamiroquai bass players, Paul was the first to really revolutionise the bands old-school bass sound since Jay Kay began a new chapter without Stuart Zender. Having joined right at the beginning of the group’s promo run for 2005’s Dynamite album, we all looked on with great interest as Paul was brought into the fold. Luckily for Jay Kay, he has without question earned the right to put his own stamp on one of the most coveted bass gigs in popular music.
In this episode of the Scott's Bass Lessons podcast we're lucky enough to be joined by the one and only Jerry Meehan.
As a bass player Jerry has worked in many different situations, from West End shows such as Les Miserables through to touring the world with Robbie Williams, or playing with Midge Ure right through to being the bass player on 'The Voice' TV show.
For episode 24 of the Scott's Bass Lessons podcast I'm lucky enough to be joined by the amazingly talented and ever original Steve Lawson. Steve is at the forefront of the solo bass world and is continually pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved and realised on the instrument.
Today I'm joined by none other than Ian King who has provided the low-end for artists such as The Temptations, The Supremes, Sister Sledge, Paul Young and West End shows such as Shrek, Jesus Christ Superstar, Sister Act, and is currently playing in the award winning show "The Book of Mormon".
