- Eric Krasno
This week on Plus One, Kraz talks with one of the hardest working musicians alive, world-renowned bassist Will Lee. In this conversation Will and Kraz talk about Will’s seasoned background as a session musician, their mutual connection to Yusef Lateef, and the 36 different albums that Will worked on during quarantine, which ranged from fusion, to blues, to funk, to Elvis impersonation. The two also discuss Will’s mastery as a band director while they dive deep on Love Rocks, the annual benefit show directed by Will that brings together an astonishing lineup of musical talent. Love Rocks NYC has helped raise more than $13 million dollars to date, and has funded over 1.3 million meals to New Yorkers in need.
Will Lee is a bassist from Austin, Texas known for his proficient session and touring work with a lengthy list of all-time great musicians. He has collaborated with Steely Dan, Diana Ross, D’Angelo, Mariah Carey, and many other incredible artists over the course of his 40+ year career, and is the founder of the world class Beatles tribute band, The Fab Faux. He is also one of the original members of The World’s Most Dangerous Band, the house band on NBC’s Late Night with David Letterman. Despite having such an extraordinary musical resume, the longtime veteran of all genres is incredibly humble about his work, and he has a great deal of wisdom to lend listeners in this episode.
