Latest Videos on Solo Bass

I have been transcribing, analyzing and then transferred to the bass guitar some of the songs that I really like in the Argentinian modern songbook.

This is a song by the great Fito Paez, called “Ambar Violeta”.

I hope you like it!

Stay tuned for more music coming up!

So… I just got a new Hofner Bass!!

I must admit that when I got the package on my hands I rushed to open it, with the same excitement of a 5 year-old kid opening a birthday present.

-It was a Hofner Beatle bass! – The same one that I use to stare on my parents vinyl records when I would listen to those eternal Beatles songs for hours.

I spent a good amount of time today just enjoying playing it – I discovered it is a pretty and versatile instrument, sounds amazing and it feels at home in my hands.

Soon after I recorded a video in tribute to my very first influence on the bass, Sir Paul McCartney.

For the first time I let my Sukop basses take a minute break for a Solo Bass video and I recorded “Yesterday” with my brand new Hofner.

You can watch it at the link below.

Enjoy!

I don’t ever get tired of talking about this amazing musician, who also happens to be one of my best friends.

We started playing together at our High School band, over 15 years back now, in Buenos Aires (Argentina). Ever since then our paths have been connected; we both attended a College of Music in Argentina (EMC), then Berklee College of Music and finally moved to New York together.

Percussionist Marcelo Woloski and I have played in the most varied musical styles and settings, such as South American Music, Rock, Folk, Soul, Gospel, Jazz, Celtic and Gamelan to name a few. We also traveled the world to places such as Hawaii, France, Scotland, Netherlands and all across the United States.

Here it is our latest project, an original bass and percussion duet that features both rhythm and melodies coming from both instruments!
Enjoy!

Please listen to the links below, there will be more to come soon!









Eva Cortes is a wonderful and unique Jazz singer from Spain who has a special flamenco background.

I have worked with her several times in New York. Our latest video was shot on a live show at Covo in Manhattan.
Percussionist Marcelo Woloski (Gloria Estefan, Fernando Otero) and guitarist Eric Kurimski (Eva Ayllon).

On the featured video we are performing a Spanish version of the Jazz Standard ‘You don’t know what love is” – Guitar, Bass and percussion solos on the video!
You can also watch it in High Definition on Youtube.

Enjoy!
