In jazz, as in most music, the bass is the bottom line. It’s both the rhythmic foundation and the harmonic support of the music. It’s the basis of everything that grooves. This brand-new film centres around pivitol moments in the instruments’ history. Featuring exclusive interviews and performances with the bass players who’ve pushed the boundaries of rhythm-section playing, elevating the instrument from a mere time-keeping role, to visionary composers and improvisors.
