Bass on "Where Is the Love?"

It's all about the stage, groove, recordings, events, videos, solos and chops right here.

Bass on "Where Is the Love?"

Postby GonzoBass » Thu Aug 05, 2010 4:12 pm

I've found credit listed for Chuck Rainey on the Roberta Flack/Donny Hathaway version

www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com


but I've been listening to the Jesse Campbell/Trina Barnette version

www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com


and can't find much info on it at all
(other than the fact that it's on the "Dead Presidents" soundtrack).

Anyone happen to know who this is on bass?

I came across this interesting tidbit:

Hello, my name is JESSE CAMPBELL – not Powel. Honest and nice mistake though. Jesse Powel is cool person and great singer. But the singers of the songs are, myself – Jesse CAMPBELL and Trina Barnette (she was 16 @ the time and is no longer singing).

Thanks for the support, love and comments everyone.

Love and peace,

Jesse CAMPBELL

Jesse uploaded the official video up on YouTube:

www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com

I posted the following comment for him: "Great job. Do you have any of the musicians credits on this tune Jesse? The bass playing is very nice. ;^)"

Thanks Gil!

Anyone care to venture a guess?
Sounds like a 5'er to me.

He does play a note lower than a low E in the pre-chorus at :33

I have no idea, but he does play with the gospel sort of sensibility IMO.

Wow, thanks for posting Tony!

Beautiful chordal work on that track.

Would love to hear more of your playing if you'd care to post your discography,
or maybe a link to your site (if you have one),
so we could check out your gear, etc.

Thanks again Tony
and welcome aboard!
