Nathan East on the Tavis Smiley Show

nathan east tavis smileyNathan East recently appeared on the Tavis Smiley show to promote his debut solo album (now available). They talk about some of the amazing musicians that Nathan plays with on his new album and you can hear some previews of the tracks as well. They also get into some of Nathan's favorites bassists which include: Larry Graham (Sly and the Family Stone / Graham Central Station), Jaco Pastorius (Weather Report), James Jamerson (Motown backing musician), Chuck Rainey (Steely Dan, Aretha Franklin), Verdine White (Earth, Wind & Fire), Rocco Prestia (Tower of Power), Paul McCartney, Sting, Marcus Miller, jazz legend Ron Carter, and the prolific studio session player Abraham Laboriel. 

"…all these guys have taken the bass to another level." - Nathan East

Listen to the interview above on SoundCloud and also visit to watch another interview they did together which aired last night on TV. Tavis is clearly a great fan of Nathan's, and the two have a great chemistry together which comes across in both interviews.
