D'Angelo - Chicken Grease (Live)

Starting on a bass transcription of this tune. I've always loved this album and I'm excited to dig into it a little deeper.

Pino Palladino (one of my all-time favorites) on bass, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson on drums, James Poyser on keys. What a band!

In honor of all the new "likes", here's one from the vault (bass players, check it out): Dee Murray's bass line on Elton John's "Rocket Man".

Dee is a master of simplicity, always creating melodic, supportive bass lines with excellent use of space. Also dig Nigel Olsson's drumming, always tasteful and grooving. I'll post up a live video of these guys playing as a trio if I can find one..
