Jaime David Vazquez – BASS LINES: The Randy Coven Tribute!
Last May 20 we lost one of the greatest bass players of all time, the amazing and virtuoso Randy Coven.
He died at age 54. Coven was a versatile bass player who worked with musicians like Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Leslie West, Blues Saraceno, Al Pitrelli, Zakk Wylde, etc.
The New York bassist was also a very talented composer, a solo artist, a producer and a columnist for GUITAR For The Practicing Musician Magazine. He has three albums as a soloist: Funk Me Tender(1990); Sammy Says Ouch!(1990) and Witch Way(2002).
Below I have for you several grooves from his outstanding debut album “Funk Me Tender.”
Enjoy the great bass playing of Randy Coven!
