James Jamerson – bass line visualisation to “For Once in My Life”.

Jack Stratton (member of uber cool band Vulfpeck) is responsible for this visualisation of James Jamerson’s bass line on Stevie Wonder’s “For Once In My Life”. The song was written by Ron Miller & Orlando Murden for Motown Records and Stevie Wonder’s version was released in 1967.

This is my favourite Jamerson line. The whole thing is cooking’. He burns through the changes with the deepest sense of groove I’ve ever heard. Hope you enjoy.
