Every episode of the Bass Freq’s Podcast brings you bass players from different walks of life, different genres, and different musical philosophies. But all are united by a true love of their craft and a dedication to pushing themselves to new levels of expression. This week's guest, the frighteningly talented fretless specialist Gary Willis, exemplifies that spirit. Known for his role as co-leader of the band Tribal Tech, Gary's career spans more than four decades and includes countless collaborations with many jazz and improvisational legends such as Wayne Shorter, Allan Holdsworth, Hubert Laws just to name a few. Here, Gary treats host Josh Paul to the story behind the player, what he’s working on, and his "outside the box” approach to composing, performing, and selecting gear.
