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.
