Revised on September 20th, 2022.
This is part of a special feature in November 2018’s issue of Bass Magazine. November 11 is Bass Day, and 50 professional bassists from the Japanese music scene have been asked about their favorite albums for the bass. Below it’s a translation of Comp’s part!
Comp’s favorite record
“Travelling Without Moving” Jamiroquai
I think this album has a great sound and groove, but the best thing about it is that you can hear the “energy” of the bass player’s playing. It’s like is filled with his soul, or rather, his way of life. It’s like a box lunch of sexy bass that makes me think “I bet he kept its sexiness in mind while he was recording!” I often listened to this album while driving.
Other albums: “Funk Overload” Maceo Parker, “The Sun Don’t Lie” Marcus Miller, “TABOO!” SOUP, “Circus” Lenny Kravitz
