In memory of one of the greatest bass players.

Our beloved T.M. Stevens.

Click here for his obituary.

Here are some of the songs we recorded together between 2004 and 2006 from the album The Deepest Part of My Soul.

Enjoy! We certainly did.

T.M. was a highly-sought-after player and session musician and has recorded and toured with many artists, including James Brown, Nona Hendryx, Joe Cocker, The Pretenders, Cyndi Lauper, Little Steven, Tina Turner, Narada Michael Walden, Darlene Love, Stevie Salas, and Billy Joel, along with hundreds of album credits including session recordings with Miles Davis and performances with Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Whitney Houston and had become a fixture on many rock and metal tribute albums over the years.

T.M. was also known for his flamboyant fashion sense and persona fronting his metal funk band Shocka Zooloo. T.M. won the hearts of fans around the globe as both a teacher and mentor to new and established bass players and will be forever remembered as a virtuosic bass giant and deftly funky producer/singer with a huge, loving heart whose motto was “Forever Bass.”

The Deepest Part Of My Soul

2007 - From the Archives

Trystette: The Deepest Part of My Soul Trystette, singer Carrie Beehan, from the 1990s Berlin electronic duo Tryst (BMG/Universal) and the front woman of former early 90's satirical Berlin band Cadillac Crooning, released in Nov 2006 her new album Deepest Part of My Soul with the legendary bassist-producer TM Stevens (Shocka Zooloo, James Brown, Pretenders, Joe Cocker, Billy Joel, Tina Turner). Residing in Berlin before moving to New York, her surreal paintings were featured in shows and her material was often derived from her work as a news and documentary editor for German Television. Featured on MTV and international radio with her first electronic Cocteaux Twins flavored album 'Tryst', she has recently entered the East Village creative epicenter via New Yorks HOWL festival presenting original, sensual and rocking melodic songs with extraordinary collisions of pop, electronic, soul, fractured break-beats and cabaret. T.M. Stevens skill and proficiency as a bassist, producer, vocalist and sideman is legendary. His ferocious yet melodic style of bass a special brand of rock, funk and manic soul is as unique as his larger-than-life onstage persona. Whether accompanying one of the many world-class performers in his resume, or fronting his own progressive metal-funk rock band Shocka Zooloo, his is a musical force to be reckoned with. Trystette's recordings include contributions from T.M.Stevens, drums Howard Alper (Radical Thought Resistance; Cory Glover). Veteran guitarist Gerry Eastman - played with New York notables like The Count Basie Orchestra, Frank Foster and Stanley Turrentine. Piano/keyboard Mfergu and guest artists Phaeder (Lotus Beat, United One records, Berlin), guitarist Michael Barnes (Shocka Zooloo) and guitarist John Cabnt (Art Neville, Bo Diddley). Coproduction/mixes by Robert L. Smith, a seasoned engineer from New Yorks Power Station & Hit Factory. Productions include David Bowies Black Tie White Noise, Rickie Lee Jones It's Like This,& Chaka Khans You & I. TM Stevens always works with the best, so I expected the same of Trystette's first album since 1998's Tryst and I was not let down. Moving away from but not completely letting go of electro-roots, The Deeper Part of My Soul is a beautiful exploration of funk, ambient, and house music, providing a perfect soundtrack for late night life.... 1340 Mag, 2007.
