This new series from Hudson Music covers performances from Bass Day '98 in New York City, plus the touring AEMP Band that presented clinics and concerts across the US in the summer of 1998.

For the many fans and players that caught Abercrombie/Erskine/Mintzer/Patitucci live, this video will serve as a nice chance to catch a different view, minus the retail setting. Patitucci plays both 6 string electric and acoustic, and is featured in different segments, though this video is intended for all players and music fans. Over six camera angles are perched and craned around a relatively large stage, and the overall production and sound are outstanding.

On Victor Wooten Live At Bass Day '98, Vic's trademark double-thumping takes a backseat to a slew of new bass techniques. Wooten established himself long ago as the greatest technician of the electric bass, and it is astounding to see how much further he has evolved.

Overall, this show is a testament to how he has developed into the player he is today. When older brother Regi joins him onstage, his importance to Victor becomes clear. Wooten also states Oteil Burbridge's tremendous influence on him, and it manifests itself in a stunning rendition of "A Night In Tunisia." Victor's persona becomes so much like Oteil that it will make you do a double take. He also plays a lot of improv with drummer Kelly Graves, and answers questions from the audience. If you really want to know how he does it, and what his experience and attitude is, check this out- you will not be disappointed. At the least, you will be astonished.

Next in the series is Rocco Francis Prestia Live At Bass Day '98. . Rocco Live At Bass Day '98 is also taped in front of a large live audience, and features 4 piece performances of the Tower of Power songs "What Is Hip?," " Soul Vaccination," and "Oakland Stroke." The rest of the group is rounded out by drummer Dave Garibaldi, Jeff Tamelier, and Lenny Pickett. This is a great opportunity to check out a tight, stripped-down rhythm section of one of the tightest funk/R&B bands alive.

Also new from Hudson Music is Bass Day '98, Featuring Michael Manring, Andy Gonzalez, Rocco Prestia, and Victor Wooten, plus special guests Oteil Burbridge, Milt Hinton, John Patitucci, and Bobby Rodriguez.
