So excited to see an album I played on nominated for a Grammy this year.
I had the pleasure of playing Bass on Celtic Woman’s album Destiny which is up for an award in the “Best world music album” section alongside Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Yo Yo Ma & the Silk road ensemble, Anoushka Shankar & Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, very distinguished company indeed. Good luck to all, especially Gavin Murphy for asking me to play on it, thank you.
Cheers, James B
Here’s a short improvisation on the Balor “Woody” bass with flatwound Ernie Ball slinky strings 45 – 130. I find these strings a little stiff on the top ones and will change them to Daddario Chrome flats 40 -130. I’ll post my thoughts on these when I get them.
Please listen with headphones to appreciate the lovely tone of this instrument 🙂 which will be featuring on Daniel O’Donnells UK tour.
