Rumer with the Funkestra at the O2 Indigo Rumer will be joined by the soulful…
We just uploaded the latest Masterlink Session video – numero 17 to be precise. It features guitarist Nat Martin, Stevie Watts on Hammond, David Leisser on drums (his MLP session ‘virgin flight’) and yours truly on bass.
Nat has been a long-term friend – we’ve met ‘way back in the day’ at the ACM when Nat was a much younger man and has guested with the Funkestra over the years. One of the many fun memories is him and former Funkestra guitarist (and still close and warm-hearted friend of the Funkestra) Eran Kendler having a most exciting ‘guitar duel’ on ‘Boozing Wizards‘ at the end of a successful Funkestra show at the Electric Theater in Guildford (I need to dig this one out and share it!).
When Nat came down to play a MLP session with Orphy Robinson and Jo Harman (he is one of her regular guitarists) he played an integral part in making these sessions a success. It was a logical and natural step to ask him to do a MLP session in his own right.
He came up with the choice of song and we spent a lovely few hours in my hours to work out the details of the arrangement which we then presented to Steve and David. We think it has come out very cool! Please have a listen for yourself!
And of course, as always – thank you so much for your support!
Carpe funkem, Stefan and the MLP sessions team.
PS: For the musicians under out Patreons – here is the chord chart for this recording.
