Bassist, composer and bandleader Joshua Crumbly has shared a heartfelt new track, “For Victor.” The third single from his upcoming debut album Rise, the song is inspired by former Weather Report bassist Victor Bailey who acted as an important early mentor for the Kamasi Washington and Leon Bridges collaborator.
“’For Victor’ is a dedication to the late Victor Bailey, whom I was fortunate enough to have as a mentor of mine,” Crumbly said in a statement. “He’s a huge influence on me as both a bassist and composer. During the studio sessions for Rise, I would share the story of what each song was about but encouraged everyone to reflect/relate to it in their own way from their own instances in their lives. ‘Gratitude’ and ‘Thankfulness’ is something that myself and all the musicians involved reflected on during the recording of ’For Victor.’ This is my ‘thank you’ to Victor Bailey in the form of a song.”
