A Conversation With Jeff Berlin (Bill Bruford, Yes, Allan Holdsworth, Ray Barretto)

Notes From An Artist

“Jeff is the best bass player on the planet!” proclaimed Geddy Lee! “Jeff the best bass player I’ve ever heard” noted Jack Bruce.  In fact, Jeff Berlin is not only a master bassist, recording artist, music journalist, podcast host, and composer – he is an acclaimed and controversial educator whose books, lectures and videos are essential for serious bassists. In addition to his extensive solo canon, Jeff has waxed sides and shared stages with Bill Bruford, Allan Holdsworth, Yes, Herbie Mann, k.d. Lang, Kazumi Wantanabe, Janis Ian, Ray Baretto, and Patti Austin, to cite a very, very select few.Jeff Berlin Playlist

#040 - Allan Holdsworth, “Tales from the Concert” - Surprise Edition, The Story of CSNY’s “Ohio”

You Should Check It Out

Episode 40 is here and we’re feeling great!There’s a handful of influential artists that Greg returns to every so often, reevaluating how they sound to his evolving tastes and musical experiences. Today he brings us his current rediscovery; the late, incredibly influential, but greatly under-appreciated Allan Holdsworth. A British jazz fusion and progressive rock guitarist and composer, known most for his work during the 70s and 80s, he an influenced guitarists like Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Alex Lifeson, and many more. We discuss his career, his style, and why Greg appreciates him so much.Songs: Allan Holdsworth - Metal FatigueAllan Holdsworth - City NightsJay is proud to introduce our newest named segment, it’s “Tales from the Concert” (as well as a corresponding theme song, Rock on Jay)! A new recurring segment, Jay’s asking each of us to share a story from a concert we attended based on a common theme. This week, we discuss our most Surprising concert experience. We won’t spoil anything by describing it further, but there were many shared experiences rekindled and it was quite a fun segment. We hope you enjoy!Song: The Who - Young Man Blues (live)Nick, amid all this fun, is unable to repress the need to forcibly relate a story from history back to the state of things today. This week it’s the story behind CSNY’s famous “Ohio”. Inspired by the Kent State shootings, which happened 50 years ago this week, we discuss whether we think there’s parallel’s to today and whether a group like CSNY could even exist today. Also, we discuss and listen to a bit of Bob Dylan’s latest song, “Murder Most Foul”.Hope everyone’s safe, see you next week!
