5.0 étoiles sur 5 L'homme qui "créa" le son de basse électrique 13 décembre 2006
Par DelAlba
Format:Broché
Très bel ouvrage consacré à "l'homme de l'ombre" qui a forgé une partie du son "Tamla Motown", le mercenaire de génie qu'était James Jamerson. Le récit de sa vie, notamment par ses proches, est illustré d'une cinquantaine de photos prises en concert, en backstage, ou en privé. L'autre moitié du livre fait la part belle à la sonorité chaude et à la technique de jeu mélodique de James ("The Hook") ainsi qu'à la réinterprétation de ses lignes de basse majeures par les grands musiciens qui l'ont côtoyé ou qui le citent aujourd'hui comme leur principale influence. Parmi cette pléiade d'instrumentistes, on peut ainsi mentionner des bassistes d'horizons aussi divers (symbole de l'empreinte exercée par notre rythmicien) que Paul Mc Cartney, Jack Bruce, feu John Entwistle, Geddy Lee, Willie Weeks, Anthony Jackson ... Plus qu'un recueil de partitions basique, ce volume permet de comprendre à quel point certains musiciens, sans même occuper le devant de la scène, peuvent influencer durablement leur art.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A posséder absolument pour tous les bassistes !! 26 septembre 2013
Par loloval
Format:Broché
James Jamerson était un génie de la basse et surement le premier. Il a influencé tout les bassistes après lui.
Ce livre est formidable car les relevés sont complets, fidèles & nombreux. De plus la qualité de l'accompagnement est au top & l'on peut bien sur supprimer la ligne de basse enregistrée pour jouer par dessus. Seul bémol pour les non-lecteurs, il n'y a pas de tablatures (et c'est tant mieux); se mettre au solfège est donc un mal nécessaire mais cela vaut largement le coup.
A acheter & travailler absolument.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good book about a great bassist 2 mai 2002
Par Robert C. Rogers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This book and CD combination examines the music of James Jamerson, the studio bassist on most of the early Motown hits. Until rather recently, Jamerson was unknown to the general public and not widely known to musicians. Nonetheless, his playing was very influential and many bassists today consider his playing the gold standard of bass guitar in popular music.
This book is valuable as a reference for the history of Motown, but it is primarily a teaching tool. It is organized into three parts. The first 78 pages give a biography of Jamerson and put his work into historical context. Part two (17 pages) is a compilation of data: descriptions of bass equipment, recording facilities, accompanists, and discography. Also included in this section is a four page "Appreciation of Style" by Anthony Jackson that attempts to analyze the musical elements that made Jamerson unique. Part three contains 90 pages of transcriptions of Jamerson bass lines and accompanying text. The transcriptions go with the CDs described below.
The CDs and transcriptions are the heart of the set. The CDs feature Motown tunes with the bass lines played by over two dozen "all-star" bassists (e.g Marcus Miller, Jack Bruce, John Entwistle). Bass is on the left channel with instrumental accompaniment on the right. The bass lines are transcribed by the author and the transcriptions are accompanied by short bios of the artists who play the lines. The tracks on the CDs are interspersed with short interviews of people who knew Jamerson. The artists reportedly donated their services as a tribute to Jamerson and the bass lines and accompaniment were recorded in a variety of circumstances. Many tracks are recorded in home studios. The quality varies, but all tracks are well played and all are useful teaching tools. I thought the variation of sounds would be a drawback, but it is a very interesting part of the project. The best Precision Bass tones are not necessarily from the artists you would expect. (Not everyone tries to duplicate Jamerson's tone. Geddy Lee was approached backstage at a concert and contributed "Get Ready" on either a Steinberger or a Rickenbacker. Lots of fun.)
The level of the transcriptions is somewhat advanced. Transcriptions are given in traditional bass staff (no tab) and the rhythms will give your reading skills a workout. There are very few specific comments about fingering, right-hand technique, or damping. Yet the range of difficulty is from dead simple (beautifully rendered) line to lines that will challenge the most advanced player. (The challenge is rhythm and feel not lots of note or big stretches.) Beginning to intermediate players can use this book, but will benefit greatly by using it with the help of a good teacher.
One can quibble with the historical overview. It is quite readable, but doesn't dig deeply into any of the tough issues it raises (e.g. Jamerson's drinking and emotional stability, Berry Gordy's business practices). Since the focus is on the music, some of this reticence is laudable. However, one important musical controversy that the author fails to pursue is the question of the true credit for recorded bass lines in the era when Motown was moving from Detroit to LA. (Many tracks were demoed by LA studio bassists and then cut by Jamerson as well. There is still debate as to which track made it to the final recording. The question is acknowledged, but no new information is brought forth.) Another musical deficit is that there is very little about the interplay between Jamerson and other members of the rhythm section. (This is in contrast to the author's better-written (if slightly less important) book on the James Brown rhythm sections.)
Even with those minor issues considers, this is an extremely valuable book. It is clearly a labor of love and will be an extremely valuable learning tool for any bassist with the fundamental skills (or support) necessary to ap

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inside the mind of a genius 26 juillet 2002
Par Mark Wieczorek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
While at one time he was simply known as "The Motown Bassist" to thousands of aspiring bass players around the world, including more famous and world class bass players than you can imagine, James Jamerson is now a legend of immense proportions. If you don't know who Jamerson is by now then you simply must get this book.
If you do know who James Jamerson is, then this book is a no brainer. Quite possibly the most influential musician of the past 50 years. If it weren't for him, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and countless of others in the rock and r&b genres wouldn't sound the way they do.
The biography is compelling and I read it straight through over a several hour period when I first received this book. The lessons are difficult, and definately not for the beginner.
For a beginner who wants to learn classic R&B style bass playing I'd reccomend the Duck Dunn book (What Duck Done) followed by the James Brown book (Funkmasters). Donald "Duck" Dunn was the house player at Stax and has also played on countless classics from Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding and many other Memphis Soul artists. More recently he's played with The Blues Brothers and even Neil Young. His lines are much more straightfoward than Jamersons and are easier to learn. When you get through that book you can go on to Funkmasters and learn some classic James Brown grooves.
Finally, when you've graduated from those books you can take a crack at the Jamerson book, though I think it should be on your shelf from day 1 to give you inspiration, and so you can listen to the tracks with the bass prominently mixed. Just to get it into your ears, so to speak. You might also hear a Motown tune you think you can pick up and will want to reference this book.
James Jamerson, legend, towering genius of Bass, has challenged countless bass players exposed to his playing. This book will challenge you, it will push you, and it will humble you. Be sure to look for the movie and CD's by the same name in the fall of 2002.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An absoute must! 27 mai 2000
Par Michael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I owned this book once before some years ago, and, unfortunately, after my fellow bassist got "hip" to it being on my shelf, it disappeared. While I was happy to pass on the knowledge of James Jamerson's work to others, several days ago, I realized this is a "must have" for anyone serious about learning the art of developing fluid, yet inventive and distinctive bass lines. Hence, I have purchased another copy. Even a cursory analysis of the material presented in this book reveals that Jamerson was a master of the unexpected and the beautiful with regard to not only rhythm, but also harmony (check out his use of "passing" tones!). It also was enlightening to learn the depth of his musical background, including his work on the double bass - some of which occurs on his Motown work. Although my own tastes tend to lean toward "free jazz," James Jamerson's work, as presnted here, reminded me that the music - no matter what genre - always must be infused with the pulse of life to truly move people and transform the world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Portrait, a Tribute, a Learning Tool, & a Great Listen 6 juin 2004
Par Daniel Leibovitz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
To comprehend James Jamerson's work, listen to the beautiful bass lines of the hits. Whether you're a student of bass or a seasoned player, playing those lines is no easy task! "Bernadette", "Reach Out",.... Envigorating sounds! Jamerson's story is here. Hear re-creations of his work minus vocals by the best of the best of today's bass players. Most of the sheet music is included!
Sitting without tribute, quietly and anonymously in the audience at the Motown 25th anniversary TV special performance in California, Jamerson had been akin to the elder Indian in the old "Keep America Beautiful" TV ad who sheds a tear with grief at the spoiling of his pristine land. This book was a great first step at righting that wrong.
This book went on to inspire a similarly titled movie on the Funk Brothers. This book and the 2 CDs that accompany it are a one-of-a-kind find for the bassists and all who crave the Motown and soul sound of the sixties and seventies. Thanks to its author for assembling the treasures and for inspiring such good will in the music community!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting history lesson/ good tutorial on how to play bass with feel 14 juillet 2006
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a very interesting read about the history of the Funk Brothers, Motown, and James Jamerson.

But in addition to being an interesting history lesson, if you learn even one or two tunes from this CD, you'll come away with the knowledge of how to play a bass line with soul and "groove", the way James Jamerson did.

I learned to play one of the transcriptions -- the Spinners hit "It's a Shame", and it brought my playing to an entirely different level. I learned how to use hammer ons and pull-offs to put soul into my basslines, and the knowledge proved to be transferable to all other kinds of bass lines I had to play in my band.

As some have pointed out, there are some difficult transcriptions, such as Darling Dear, where you have to read a lot of 16th note rhythms. Also, some of the transcriptions aren't complete -- you only get part of the song.

I might add that the CD is a compilation of Jamerson lines played by professional bass players such as Marcus Miller, Gerald Veasley and others. At the beginning of each song, the professional bassist gives a little verbal excerpt as to how Jamerson or the song they are playing inspired them. It's quite interesting to listen to.

Overall, it's a great book/CD package/ and one I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn to play the bass with feel and "groove", or who simply wants an interesting history lesson about life at Motown and in the Funk Brothers.
