Bass Player - August 2013 - Will Lee

Sale price $5.99 Regular price $9.99

 

Three decades after becoming a fixture on late-night television alongside David Letterman and Paul Shaffer, Will Lee is busier than ever. Between tours and sessions, he's managed to complete his second solo album, the song-oriented Love, Gratitude and Other Distractions.

Chris Jisi catches up with "Uncle Will" to talk shop. Jean-Jacques Burnel and the Stranglers have returned with Giants, an album that captures the band's signature blend of punk, new wave, and balls-to-the-wall rock & roll.

Elsewhere, we chat with Nick Beggs with progressive rocker Steven Wilson, Deck D'Arcy with Phoenix, and Todd Smallie with JJ Grey & Mofro, and we get a snapshot of the bass scene at this year's New Orleans Jazz Fest.

In the Soundroom, we take two acoustic bass guitars from Veillette, a mammoth 12-string from Musicvox, and hip new string sets from Dunlop and D'Addario out for a spin, and we dig into a funk transcription for the ages, the left-hand key-bass work of Greg Philanganes with Chaka Khan on her remake of the Beatles' "We Can Work It Out." Dig in and get down!
