Lari Basilio is currently busy putting together her as-yet-untitled upcoming studio album, for which she’s recruited bass guitar legend Lee Sklar and keys session wizard Ester Na. Now Basilio has guest starred on Na’s own musical work, dousing the pianist’s latest track Free with a healthy dose of stellar six-string work.

Na introduces a swelling, Titanic-esque theme that plays unaccompanied until the 35-second mark, at which point Basilio makes her entrance with pinpoint bends toyed with by way of some tasteful plunges on the whammy bar.
