Let's Meet Alex Blake

Says Marcia Bujold, if you like jazz, check this guy Alex Blake out. He is incredible! I've never heard anyone play a bass like that! Not just plucking strings, but also using the strings as percussion and as a strumming instrument. He gets some dramatic sounds. He often tours with Randy Weston, who is also amazing. She just saw him at Snug Harbor.

Here is another amazing video: Randy Weston and Alex Blake pay tribute to friend and fellow musician Freddie Hubbard who past in December 2008. The Memorial was held in Harlem's historic Abyssinian Baptist Church.
