Mash of the Titans: Pino Palladino and Blake Mills

"Yeah, Pino, do you have this big archive of stuff?" Blake Mills is ribbing Pino Palladino about the question I just asked, but it's something we're both very interested to know. "Yeah, I do," the legendary bassist exasperatedly replies, as if he's finally let out the secret that he's been composing and recording original music throughout four-and-a-half decades, keeping it to himself until now.

Pino Palladino Interview: Four Decades Of Incredible Bass Playing

“All musicians are the same, we all think we’re rubbish,” Pino Palladino told a British television interviewer in 2013, adding a gentle laugh. It was a typically massive understatement from the quietly affable Welsh bassist, among the highest-regarded session players in the music industry. In this case, Palladino was referring to hearing Paul Young’s “Wherever I Lay My Hat” on the radio for the first time in 1983 – particularly his casual contribution, one of the most recognizable bass lines of the 1980s. “I was worried that it sounded a bit out of tune,” he said.

Pino Palladino, pop's greatest bassist: 'I felt like a performing monkey!'

By his own admission, Pino Palladino is not a man much accustomed to giving interviews. “Very reticent,” he nods during a Zoom call, his accent speaking noticeably louder of his childhood in Cardiff than his current home in LA. “You know, there was a time when I was featured in all sorts of musicians’ magazines, and then I just thought to myself, ‘Move over, there’s people out there that actually need the publicity.’ Not to blow smoke up my own arse,” he adds hurriedly, “but really I just didn’t want to see or hear from myself.”

Pino Palladino: Various: Motown Chartbusters Vol. 3

At the time of this recording I was probably 15 or 16—I was just getting into music when I heard "(I'm A) Roadrunner." This track by Junior Walker on Motown Chartbusters Vol. 3 just turned me around—I just couldn't get enough of it and must have played it 100 times.

Pino Palladino and Blake Mills Album, “Notes With Attachments,” Now Available

“It all evolved from me playing Blake a few ideas, getting a reaction from [him] and seeing if he’d be interested in working on [them],” he said. “As the project evolved in the first few weeks and months—even though the music was mostly coming from my original ideas, some of which I’d had for quite a while—[because of] Blake’s response to the ideas, it dawned on both of us that it would be a collaborative record.”

Pino Palladino: The Craftsman from Wales

I like to think of myself as being a compositional player who has a capacity to fit into different genres. That's what has always interested me. Refined craftsmanship is in small supply in today's music business, especially in the music business that fills sports arena or large music venues. Pino Palladino belongs to the small guild of refined craftsmen whose membership is reserved to musicians who do not seek the spotlight but pursue beauty through art, because that is what they were meant to do and how they were meant to do it, no ego, fully at the service of Her Majesty, The Music.

Pino Palladino and Blake Mills: Notes With Attachments

Do not be put off by the cover. It might suggest inaccessible, up itself, bone-dry cerebralism, but the reality is contrariwise. Around a third of the music is vaguely reminiscent, in spirit if not in execution, of the 1949 -1950 Birth Of The Cool sessions conducted by Miles Davis with arrangers Gil Evans, John Lewis, Gerry Mulligan and Johnny Carisi. Much of the rest sounds like a sci-fi twist on traditional Senegambian music.
