R&B singer Bosco has released the first single from her upcoming album Some Day This All Will Make Sense, with the laid back, hard-grooving track "Piano Song." Behind that groove is Jordan Brooks (Ex-Poets, Albert Hammond Jr, Lulu, Rubblebucket, Roosevelt), who provides deep pocket lines with some superb tone.
Brooks used his 1981 G&L L1000 bass strung with D'Addario XL Nickel strings for the session, where he recorded one full take of the song, which ended up being what you hear on the record.
Bosco's upcoming full length album will be released later this year and will feature more of Brooks' playing.
Brooks is an Los Angeles-based bassist and producer originally from Chicago, IL. He moved to New York in 2002 and graduated from New School University with a degree in music performance on upright bass. He's toured internationally and recorded with artists such as Albert Hammond Jr, , Lulu, Jesse Harris, Lee Fields, Rubblebucket, Roosevelt, and Escort.
He also leads his own band, a collaborative recording project with Colin Killalea, called Ex-Poets. Their debut album, Too Much Future, came out in September 2018 on Text Me Records (listen here). The band is currently working on their next album now.
