About This Episode

In today’s podcast we’re talking to Jimbo Hart of American Southern Rock band Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit

It’s so often the case that a great rhythm section lies behind almost every great band, and Jimbo Hart is the kind of bassist whose playing provides a solid link between Jason Isbell’s vocals and the rest of the band. Hailing from the Muscle Shoals region of Northwest Alabama, Jimbo has been busy honing his bass playing on Isbell’s new record, The Nashville Sound, which is his first with the 400 Unit since 2011.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • All about his recent tour with the Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit.
  • What he’s learnt from fellow Muscle Shoals bassist David Hood.
  • All about his Sadowsky bass that was given to him by Jason Newsted.
  • What it’s like recording at FAME Studios.
  • And much, much more…
