In this video interview, ol’ Jeff sits down with FBPO’s Jon Liebman (over sushi!) to discuss music education, BX3 and the current tour with Scott Henderson & Mike Clark
Jeff Berlin is considered by many to be the finest electric bass player in the world. A true master of the bass, Jeff has played with the likes of Bill Bruford, George Benson and Allan Holdsworth and has toured with the original members of Yes. He has also toured with BX3, a conglomeration with fellow bassists Stuart Hamm and Billy Sheehan. Jeff’s playing has been lauded by bass greats no less than Jaco Pastorius, Geddy Lee and Marcus Miller.
Jeff is the founder of The Players School of Music in Clearwater, Florida, and has also been at the forefront of music education for almost 30 years. His columns in Guitar Player and Bass Player magazines were wildly popular and often controversial.
Jeff’s numerous recording credits include seven highly acclaimed solo records: Champion, Pump It!, Taking Notes, In Harmony’s Way, Lumpy Jazz, Aneurythms and the just-released High Standards, recorded with pianist Richard Drexler and drummer Danny Gottlieb.
