The Life and Music of Legendary Bassist James JamersonBassist James Jamerson was the embodiment of the Motown spirit and groove -- the invisible entity.

Just music that everyone could dig. Like the Wolfman said "You gonna love it to death baby".

The Funk Brothers were session musicians, or studio musicians. A bunch of misfits who gelled the Motown sound. Back then studio musicians didn't make much money.

Standing in the Shadows of Motown

And even though they were playing for Motown they were still black, all but one, in a white dominated music world. So when Gordie moved to California he left Hitsville high and dry.

The documentary "Standing in the Shadows of Motown" tells the story. With no music jobs the musicians wandered Detroit looking for gigs. The story of James is the story of the Detroit sound.

Can you dig it? Give this a read if you love music history , Motown, bass, or James Jamerson. I think this an enjoyable and great read for anyone, musical background or not unless, of course, you don't enjoy this sort of music.

If you like funk though I can almost guarantee you'll like this book and appreciate the genius of t As a musician, aspiring bass player, and general fan of music especially when it's heavy on the low end this is probably one of my favorite books and I generally don't read non-fiction.

Licks has passion and understanding, and I understand that some of the research done for this book is important, but He's not much as a writer. This story could be told better It would be great to have more background, more interviews, more or at least higher quality photos.

Virtually everything that exists related to Jamerson would fit in one book; why be selective? It would be great to have tablature for the transcriptions, if only so more people could learn from them.

The original multitracks for these songs exist, and many have an isolated bass tracks. A Motown-blessed version with Jamerson's actual recordings would be the real thing we want and need, rather than the tribute-record hodgepodge.

But I know that's unlikely and was even less likely in Is the tribute record better than nothing? Not for me. Book Description Condition: Bookseller Inventory ST Seller Inventory ST Book Description Hal Leonard.

the Standing in the Shadows of MOTOWN (the James Jamerson book)

A classic of bass instruction presenting notes, patterns, rhythms and over songs and riffs. This book focuses on James.

Marc rated it it was amazing Dec 12, It was down four steps from his kitchen and originally had a dirt floor. Two CDs accompany the book and the transcriptions are played on the CD by some serious bad ass bassists eg Marcus Miller, Will Lee, Rocco Prestia, Geddy Lee Pino Palladino, Anthony Jackson himself, Phil Chen, etc etc with the mixes panned so that you can isolate the bass or remove it completely and use the track as your own backing track!

The stars tributes and recordings are not.
