Bass Workshop/Live on Instagram

During this time of pandemic when everyone’s gig has been canceled, I’ve decided to start a Live Direct on Instagram daily. I share some tips about bass, harmony, technique, repertoire and music in general. I’ve been blown away by the response I’ve gotten so far! People from India, Colombia, Japan, UK, France, Russia, Spain and all over the world log in everyday, eager to learn and hear about music. I decided to put together all the material covered (around 50 workshops already) and it will soon be available for sale in video and PDF format on this website. Stay tuned and join the live stream on Instagram! @clovisnicolas

New album out

The album “FAIR PLAY”, for the JazzTribes label, has just been released! It presents a quartet led by saxophonist Barend MIDDELHOFF and features Peter BERNSTEIN (gtr), Jason TIEMANN (dms) and yours truly on bass. I co-produced it, composed three songs, and worked on the mix with one of my favorite sound engineers. The result is quite good!! I invite you to get a copy or listen to one of the songs in the Discography page. I also offer the three charts I wrote in the Shop section of my website.

Last tour in January/February 2020

I had the opportunity to be on the road with my quartet earlier this year, touring France, Germany and England, with a great cast of musicians such as Gregory HUTCHINSON, Leon PARKER or Matt FISHWICK on drums (depending on the dates) plus the frontline of Dmitry BAEVSKY on saxophone and Steve FISHWICK on trumpet. You can find some music from that tour on my YouTube or my SoundCloud channel. Also, the concert we did at Radio France in Paris in front of a sold out auditorium will be re broadcasted at a later date. Stay tuned (or join my mailing list) for more info.
