Podcast Interview with the great Etienne Mbappe

Etienne Mbappe is a musician’s musician, a Paris based bass player, originally from Cameroon.  He began his musical career in Paris in the 80s, playing with the leading names on the African music scene.  He was part of Ultramarine, a groundbreaking world music fusion band, and was eventually recruited by the jazz legend Joe Zawinul to join his band, and later by  another music icon, John McLaughlin, with whom he still tours and records.

This year he joined Jimmy Herring, Wayne Krantz, Keith Carlock, and Michael Landau in a new super group — The Ringers.  Fresh off thier first tour, and just before the upcoming tour with John McLaughlin, this seemed like a perfect time to talk with Etienne( aka ATN to friends & fans.)

Interview with Jerry Jemmott, the Groovemaster Part 1

Part 1

Jerry Jemmott’s bass is the foundation of B.B. King’s career defining hit, “The Thrill is Gone.” He was in the studio with Duane Allman and Wilson Pickett recording “Hey Jude,” a track that was instrumental in launching Duane’s musical career; and they were together again for Herbie Mann’s Push Push (Atlantic, 1971), Duane’s first and only jazz sessions, and the last full album he recorded prior to his death. He was also there on December 13, 1968, when Mike Bloomfield called an unknown Johnny Winter, up onstage at the Fillmore East—a Friday the 13th that turned out to be Winter’s lucky day.

Jemmott was with singer Aretha Franklin when she conquered San Francisco’s hippie community at the Fillmore West in March of 1971.

Jerry Jemmott’s blues credits are truly remarkable: in addition to B.B. King, Freddie King, Mike Bloomfield, Duane Allman, Otis Rush, Johnny Winter, Warren Haynes, and Derek Trucks, there’s his legendary association with Cornell Dupree, Bernard Purdie, and King Curtis. And of course there’s his collaboration with Jaco Pastorius.

In this extensive interview Jerry Jemmott speaks about all this, as well as his wide ranging session work for Atlantic Records, and his current gig with blues/rock legend Gregg Allman.
