Storyline

Nathan East For The Record is a documentary film that takes viewers behind-the-scenes as one of the most influential bass players in modern music recorded his debut solo album last year. His long-awaited solo album (released in March) spent four weeks at #1 on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Album chart and 34 weeks in the top position on smoothjazz.com. For The Record also chronicles Nathan's three decade plus career from when he hit the road age 16 with Barry White, his session and touring work across musical genres and membership in the legendary jazz quartet Fourplay. The film features interviews with many of the musicians he's worked with including Clapton, Phil Collins, Lionel Richie, Quincy Jones, Vince Gill, Herbie Hancock, Don Was and more.

A Yamaha Commercial
17 September 2016 | by stine_pineSee all my reviews

Although music history fans will find some good stuff in this film, it becomes clear about 1/2 way through that this was funded by Yamaha to promote Yamaha instruments and to promote Nathan East's new album. In the first 10 minutes of the film it is well established that Nathan is an exceptional bass player with illustrious credentials and is an all around good guy. The majority of the rest of the film is primarily famous people gushing over him, over and over and over again so that you may be rushing for the exits before the film has ended. It is as much an infomercial as it is a documentary so beware.

Having said all that, there are some interesting nuggets in the film that may make it worth watching. If you are a fan of the history of rock, soul and other kinds of popular music, it may be worth a watch.
