Bobby, you beat me to the punch!

Also, Scott LaFaro, who played on a few Bill Evans records is a very nice player to listen to.

Oooops, sorry,Moosebass!!!
i'll have to check out Mr. LaFaro sometime!!!
Actually, one of my favorite bassists is a UK bloke named Pino Palladino!!! He's toured w/ folks like Pete Townsend,Jeff Beck, and i believe Howard Jones, and does studio work!!!
He's got this Nasty Habit of taking ok songs and making them Great songs by writing these melodic bass lines that are simply To Die For!!!
For examples, check out:
Give Blood-Pete Townsend
the bass just propells that song to the next level!!!

and Shouting Stage-Joan Armatrading
simply Haunting!!!

Actually, anything he's done w/ Joan Armatrading is OUTSTANDING!!! He's so musical, it hurts!!! i've often wondered how Peter Gabriel's SO album would have turned out if Pino had played bass instead of Tony Levin!!!

No worries mate!
I LOVE what Pino did on David Gilmours About Face CD.
I always think of him every time I hear or play a Pedulla.


OOH, Jamerson! Missed that one.

Anyone for Aston 'Family Man' Barrett?
