I'm Jacque Harper, a bassist in the Chicago area with jazz, legit and pop experience. I want to help singer/songwriters by recording solid bass parts for their songs, and film/commercial producers with real bass on their tracks.
I have worked in orchestras, jazz groups and musical theater for over thirty years. I've got solid experience and education (wow, I'm a "Master of Music" from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music) to lay down a solid bass part for your single. I especially want to help singer/songwriters, film composers and anyone with other creative ideas. Open to working in most styles. Pizzicato (plucked) and arco (bowed).
I'm the founder of the Chicago Bass Ensemble - a unique chamber group consisting of four double basses.
I look forward to working with you!

Working with Jacque was easy and fun. He did an awesome job with my song and was spot on with the adjustments that was needed. He is really good with communication which makes a work flow fast and smooth. Mahalo Nui.
I had Jacque write and record a bass line for a jazz song - it sounded great. He finished two days ahead of our agreed deadline and was very communicative throughout the process.
Excellent work! Can highly recommend Jacque Harper!
Jacque is a versatile, proficient, and highly responsive artist. He worked well with the charts I provided, and gladly offered his own insights and personal composition along the way. His recordings were clean, and high quality. Easy to work with, quick turnaround, and makes the project his own. I highly recommend.
A pleasure to work with. Mellow but totally engaged, Jacque helped me make my songs better by both challenging me and giving me confidence in myself as a songwriter--which is a pretty deft combination. And oh yeah--his basslines sound fantastic!
