That was wonderful I love being turned onto new stuff or stuff I have never heard thanks for the gem!

Vintage Fender basses and 70's SVT's that about sums it up for me.

The JJ Ricky! [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Thanks for the answer. I could never remember who it was that played the JJ Ricky. Very cool groove.

These guys are teriffic in condert. I don't know how much they are traveling these days.

Their CD Triple Play Live is the one to get. It includes this tune. Their other CDs are good but Live is outstanding.
It used to be available from Chris's site but it's changed and I didn't see a link. Amazon may still have it.

Many, MANY years ago (1985, I think) I was at a church music conference and heard The New Brubeck Quartet. Dave Brubeck and his sons (I remember that Darius and Chris were there, maybe another Brubeck son also?) played a musical work that Dave Brubeck was commisioned to write especially for this music conference. It was quite a trip seeing a full classical orchestra playing along with a jazz group. I especially enjoyed the improvisational sections where Dave and the boys just lit it up. I was intrigued with hearing Chris' playing on that fretless Ric. It caught my eye when I saw him coming out on stage with that thing; talk about a contrast to the classical instruments in the house. I had the good fortune of sitting right at the edge of the stage and seeing a legend like Dave Brubeck up close. The way Chris was seated, he had his back to me, so I did not see that his bass was fretless until I heard him play. He had my attention after that. [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

Thanks for bringing back a very pleasant memory. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]
