But one of the things we didn’t report was this hilarious anonymous tip from someone identifying themselves as a runner at a NYC music studio:

Just met lovely guy who is journalist from TV. Martin Bashir. He’s cutting a reggae album. He’s top class bass player like totally good. Do you know this? You should!

We did NOT know this!

So we looked into it…

First on TVNewser: Yes, it turns out that Bashir, who says he taught himself to play bass, is releasing an album with musician/composer Gary Haase this fall. He had executive produced Haase’s 2005 jazz album.
