William Menefield Trio Live Stream from The Greenwich

This past Friday I performed with my good friends William Menefield and Anthony Lee in Ohio. I featured the show as a live stream on my Facebook page. You can also watch a replay below. We had a fun time at this show and lots of great moments were captured on video. Take a look and see for yourself.

The Return of MeeksonBass! Youtube Series

I'm returning to my YouTube bass video series, MeeksOnBass! This time I'll be experimenting with live loops and some original production as opposed to only playing bass to pre-recorded songs. There will be at least one new video each week.

For this first video, I'm playing around with one of my favorite songs from KING. It's called Supernatural and you can find it on their album We Are King. If you haven't heard it yet I highly recommend it. I'll even go as far as to say it's some of the nicest music I've heard since discovering Stevie Wonder's classic albums from the '70's.

Check out the video and let me know what you think. I always enjoy your feedback!

See Miles Ahead by Don Cheadle in Theaters Everywhere April 22nd

Don Cheadle's film, Miles Ahead will be opening in New York and Los Angeles on April 1st and opening nationwide on April 22nd. I'm super excited about this. I was at the film's premier at New York Film Fest 53 in October. Let me be the first to tell you that it's definitely worth going to see. I'm somewhat biased because I'm in the movie but I'd say the same thing if I wasn't.

As a huge fan of Miles Davis, I think Don Cheadle did an outstanding job of capturing his character, distinct voice, mannerisms and spirit. There was also an excellent approach to representing the music from each of Miles' creative periods. Miles Ahead is an awesome work of art that further solidifies Miles Davis' place in history and illustrates his lasting impact on the present generation of musicians. Below is a video of Cheadle speaking in depth about the movie during an interview at Sundance Film Festival. Please take a look.
