Featured in TIR Episode 198 (Parts 1 & 2): Bassist and composer Robert Harper! Growing up in Southern California’s Carson community, he was influenced and inspired by exposure to music stars like Chuckii Booker, Barry White collaborator Terence Thomas, Teena Marie and Ice-T associate Bendrix Williams, Crusaders offspring Wilton Felder Jr. and Brian O’Neal of The Bus Boys.
Gigging regularly as an ace session player, Harper worked with late, great fellow bassists Louis Johnson of the Brothers Johnson and Robert Wilson of the Gap Band. In recent years, he has carved out a solo career with a pair of albums and an EP. His most recent release, The Fonk Record, came out earlier this year and with tracks like “Get Up,” “All About That Funk” and “On Tha One,” it fully delivers on that title.
Bass heads and other musicians will especially enjoy the in-depth dive into his gear.
