Nathan East is one of the world’s premiere session musicians. He’s perhaps best known as Eric Clapton’s favorite bassist, but that’s also Nathan East on Michael Jackson’s Bad and Daft Punk’s recent Grammy winning album. Of course he’s a founding member of the highly successful jazz group Fourplay. Some of his other credits include: Anita Baker, Herbie Hancock, Babyface, B.B. King, George Harrison, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Savage Garden, Sting, Quincy Jones, Al Jarreau, Kenny Loggins, and The Manhattan Transfer.

His debut self-titled album will be released March 25, 2014, with guest appearances by Michael McDonald, Sara Bareilles, Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton, Kazumasa Oda, Bob James, Chuck Loeb, Ray Parker, Jr., David Paich and his son Noah East.

Alan Bryson previews his album, and speaks with him about Eric Clapton's 2014 tour and much more during this audio interview.
