ABOUT

I am an experienced bass player that wants to play in variety band with some jazz standards mixed in, work full time. I'm even interested in a duo/trio situation. Can practice during the day or at night. Contact me online at tlbass at cox dot net;1dabss at g-m-a-i-l dot c-o-m
I moved here in 1985. Local bands that I have played in: Commander Daily and the Blues Battalion, The Jim Glass Band, Small Paul and the Drivin' Wheel, Milk n Honey, Thomas Oliver and the Kick Band, The Midnite Blues band, The Hot Ice Band, The Soul City Band, The J Powers band, The Groove Defenders, The Generations band, Thomas Oliver and Hot Foot, Tequila Rose and Company, The Mike Harris Band, Krimson Chord Band. Emphasis on fun. I can sing lead and back up vocals. I am more interested in collaborating with a guitar or piano/keyboard player to work on songs for fun. I play at least two hours a nite keeping my chops up. Looking for someone who has the experience and knowledge to know Chord progressions that have circle of fourths, fifths, flatted fifths, etc. I play by ear and can follow chord. charts. I like Brazil Bossa Nova. Sergio Mendes Brasil 6...live 2014 Vienna France 2014. There are more chords to play than just country chords like in Girl Crush. 1,3m, 4, 1, 5, ....6m, 4, 1, 5.. Was tutored in piano bar jazz music out on Guam 6 nites a week for three years by a Jazz Pianist. Came back to USA and finally settled in Gilbert, Az. Trying to find someone with the experience, proficency, but more so interested in this type of music. I already know how to play Mustang Sally, Sweet Home Alabama, Brick House, Shaky Ground, etc.. Great songs. Good bar songs. ( I know it dates me) Would like to get together once a week and play songs we want to work on. If interested contact me then we can talk.
