This week has been very inspiring for me. There have been some bummers too. Roy Hargrove passed unexpectedly. I didn’t know Roy, but I loved the way he played and was a big fan of his music. On the other hand, I’ve been unusually busy and have been blessed with an abundance of work. Over in London, I was hired to play on two projects, one with one of the singers from the Drifters, (Under the Boardwalk), and another for a composer of children’s music. I feel like I’m learning too and feel like I’m nine again when I do those kind of projects. I also got a smooth jazz song to play on, so I’m definitely going from one thing to another. I also got to take part in another hard rock piece from a gentleman in Syracuse NY, and this morning, something came in from a producer in Italy that reminds me of U2. It has to be done today. If that wasn’t enough, I got an offer to play a show in St Croix in December. I’ll reveal names and tracks on my website as they come to completion. I feel very fortunate about all of this and just wanted to share. Keep on your path. Dreams do come true.
I am really honored that my interview is is now available to be seen on www.forbassplayersonly.com. It was nice to be asked of course. Now I have to practice harder. Thanks to my sponsors #ghsstrings #tsunamicables and #bartolinipickups and thank goodness mostly that my hands work, because that's where the sound really comes from. Thank you to all the artists I play for all over the world, because they keep me working! Let me know if you need bass!
What do think of this for our Spotify picture? I kind of like it. Looking forward to many a track with these guys. @ajlsoundwave @jcoop.drum give us a follow @paradigmsync
Here's a nice little piece. Tell me what you think. What did you record today? I recorded this with my pals with @paradigmsync including @ajlsoundwave and @jcoop.drum #bartolinipickups #tsunamicables #ghsstrings #sessionbassist #recording
That's what he said. ITS TRUE! Especially if you want to work! There are some players with astonishingly good technique out there and that's cool, but bear in mind the FEEL is what counts. #psa #musicianship #groovetheory #greatmusic #feel
Hope your Friday is going well. A new single has just dropped by @paradigmsync on iTunes and will be in Spotify by the end of the day. @ajlsoundwave @jcoop.drum and myself @markcorradetti. Lots of new music coming your way with lots of your favorite musicians. #recordingstudio #tracks #bassplayerunited #tsunamicables #bartolini #ghsstrings

I'm delighted to be able to say I've been asked to partner/contribute to a new project called Paradigm Sync. We'll be recording and producing music for all media, such as TV, publishing and sync placements. We're already getting some traction. I'll be working with @ajlsoundwave and @jcoop.drum and other composers on some pretty seriously cool projects. Please follow us @paradigmsync to follow what we're doing. #music #musicplacement #sync #bumpmusic #musicpublishing #bmi
Little PSA for today. This is how you eat your pizza. You fold it. Always. Every time. Please don't eat it with a knife and fork. Really...it's offensive to some people. Thank me later.😀#pizza #pizzafan #italians #foodie #etiquette
