Beneath The Bassline
Bass Greats Assemble For New Documentary
Beneath The Bassline brings together some of the finest bass players on the planet. Travelling to Fodera Guitars in Brooklyn, Sadowsky Guitars in Long Island City and Aguilar Amplification in Manhattan’s Soho district – featuring interviews with the likes of Will Lee, Richard Bona, Billy Sheehan, Bootsy Collins, Duff McKagan, Felix Pastorius, Mark King, Lee Sklar, John Patitucci, Larry Graham, Marcus Miller, Robert Trujillo, Nathan East, Stanley Clarke and many others, it’s packed with never-before-told stories and anecdotes as well as behind-the-scenes footage. “This is a film for anyone who loves the bass guitar,” said Director, Nick Wells. “We wanted to get to grips with what really makes these guys tick, find out how they evolved their respective sounds and styles, and get a glimpse into their world in a way that I don’t think any other documentary has.” The film premiered at last year’s Doc N’ Roll Film Festival in Central, London and is available from www.beneaththebassline.com on DVD and as a digital download.
