In today’s podcast Ruth Goller talks us through her inspired bass work with some of the coolest names on the London jazz scene.
Ruth has been a regular presence on the London jazz scene for several years now, toting a Fender Mustang and performing with a wide variety of bands including The Moss Project, Let Spin and punk-jazz rockers Acoustic Ladyland. Yet for all her jazz knowledge, Ruth’s unfussy technique favours sparse plectrum work over busy fingerstyle. Her background is distinctly non-jazz, and in spite of having chops to spare, an attitude of ‘less is more’ informs everything that she plays.
In this episode you're going to learn:
All about Ruth’s cultural heritage and her early love of hardcore punk.
What it takes to hold down the bass chair in Acoustic Ladyland.
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.
