Sunny Needs a Real Bass Player Real Quick
With all due respect to Ron Carter, who was accompanying Bobby Hebb in the first Sunny video we posted, we need some greezy bass playing in our Sunny covers. The Official Cover Song of the Twenty-Teens needs more bottom, I say. Not sure about cowbell. Jamiroquai's somewhat nameless bass player, from their performance at what I gather is a live show at Covent Garden in Londinium in 2000, is certainly gittin her dun.
Jamiroquai is my kind of band. They're not anything. They're everything. I tried to figure out who was playing the bass on this recording. It looks like Nick Fyffe, who was amusingly on his way to apply for a job in a Jamiroquai tribute band when Jamiroquai called him and asked him to join.
Jamiroquai's Wikipedia page lists a didgeridoo player that was in the band for seven years. That's a good gig for a didgeridoo player. If you're driving on a deserted West Texas highway, and you see a dead armadillo and a dead didgeridoo player squashed flat in the middle of the road, what's the main difference between them?
Well, there's a slight possibility that the dead armadillo might have been on his way to a paying music job when he got run over.
