Runaway from the from Jamiroquai's Live at Abbey Road session. Smack full of Paul Turner goodness. I appologize for the mistakes, or...um....creative accidentals?

Wanted to show off my new recording setup :D read about it below

Not a note for note cover, but why would it be? It's acid jazz, it's meant to be changed, as long as it sounds cool, right? I'm going to change up the instrumentation of the song anyways when my band covers it this year.

I appologize for the video quality. The video's recorded just on a webcam.

For those of you who are interested, (my signal chain's gotten a bit complicated):
I'm playing a Fender American Jazz Bass Deluxe V circa 2005. It's running into a Tech21 Sans Amp DI for the sole purpose of splitting the signal. One signal path goes into an FMR Audio RNP preamp. As an insert into the RNP I've got a DBX 266XL compressor. From there it goes into my Presonus Firepod (skipping it's rather mediocre preamps). The other signal path goes through a (new) Boss GEB-7 eq to a Boss CS-3 compressor into a Markbass Little Mark III bass head driving an Ampeg SVT-210HE cab. It's mic'd with an AKG D112. It again goes into my RNP preamp with a DBX 266XL as an insert. From there it goes into my Presonus Firepod.
It's recorded into Cubase 5, compressed a bit again and leveled with the backing track.

It's all a bit cumbersome, but i think it sounds great! It's probably about as close as I can get to the original sound with a JBass.
