PLEASE SUBSCRIBE ON YOUTUBE –THANK YOU!

Brought to you by FUNKNSTUFF.NET and hosted by Scott “DR GX” Goldfine — musicologist and author of “Everything Is on THE ONE: The First Guide of Funk” ― “TRUTH IN RHYTHM” is the interview show that gets DEEP into the pocket with contemporary music’s foremost masters of the groove.

Featured in TIR Episode 135 (2 parts): Danish bassist Ida Nielsen, best known as a member of Prince’s New Power Generation and 3rdEyeGirl bands, but also an increasingly prolific artist in her own right. That includes five solo albums since 2008, with her latest, 02022020, released earlier this year. That record is a mellow departure from her customary funk and danceable grooves.

Here she shares her musical life with and apart from Prince, describing what it was like performing with arguably the greatest musician of all time. She also offers assurance that her next album will be a return to funk grooves and slap bass.

RECORDED FEBRUARY 2020
