There's Something About Marta

There’s Something About Marta

Marta Altesa is a twenty-year-old bassist from Spain that just started playing bass in 2010.  I first saw Marta’s videos at NoTreble.  Fantastic player.

From Tal Wilkenfeld to Esperanza Spalding to Marta Altesa, there are a lot of female bassists that are making the rest of us look bad.  Literally and figuratively.

Marta’s YouTube page is here and her Facebook fan page is here.  Below are two of the covers that she posted on YouTube.  Outstanding.
