Bass Player - July 2015 - John Patitucci


Bass Player’s July 2015 issue features John Patitucci who has gone electric again with a new instrument and a new album. After leaning on his upright in recent years, Patitucci raises the bar once more for jazzers—and others—who plug in.

Then, decades after their epic success as MTV mainstays, Gould and Faith No More return with hard-hitting grooves and devastating bass tones.

Next, Andy Fraser employs slinky syncopations and staccato 16ths on this hard-rock classic from 1970.

Later, Henry Beal works through college with the “House of Cards” theme, Kyle Sanders catches up with Hellyeah, Nola Jass Fest ’15 with Christian McBride & old-school funkers light up New Orleans, and Matt Mangano is producer ears for the Zac Brown Band.

Plus: New gear from Hartke, Electro-Harmonix, Boss & more.
