In today’s podcast we’re talking to a bass player who’s taken the art of groove playing to a whole new level.
Jonathan Maron has developed a reputation as one of the New York bass scene’s most reliable musicians. D’Angelo, Maxwell, Tupac Shakur, Jewel, India Arie, Donny McCaslin, Anoushka Shankar, Kurt Rosenwinkel and many others have recruited Jonathan at one time or another. His best-known gig has always been with the legendary Groove Collective, who acquired a cult following among club goers in the early 90s with their eclectic mix of jazz-inspired funk. His recorded catalogue grows more impressive and more dialled in from album to album, and the great news is, we've just released his first ever course into the SBL Course Library.
In this episode you're going to learn:
All about Jonathan’s new SBL Course; The Science of Groove
How he first got started with NYC’s Groove Collective.
Why he likes to experiment with different basses and effects pedals.
What it was likes playing on Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite.
As you can probably tell... I'm so excited to release this to you! Give it a listen and then, and if you’re up for it, leave the show a review in iTunes…
… It costs nothing, and it’d mean the world to me because it helps other bass players who are interested in listening and learning from some of the best players in the world to find the show and start making progress.
