He's been first a first call bassist every since he went to Nashville. Nice guy too. I exchanged several emails with him. I was looking through a used record rack at a flea market and there was a North Texas State Jazz Band record. He played bass on it. I emailed him and told him about it. When I was in college studying music, the NTS Jazz Band was legendary. Several people I know went to grad school there.

There sure are a lot of great players that come from the North Texas State lab band! Chris Maresh comes from there too. Hungate is a wonderful player!

Hell, no mention of his work with Toto? Their first four albums were great. I especially liked "Turn Back."

He's definitely a quintessential pocket player. I remember an article where he explained Nashville charts. He's a smart guy and a good communicator. Enjoying the interview. Thanks for posting it!

A gem from Turn Back...

I've always been a HUGE Toto fan from way back. Great band.

I was listening to Silk Degrees today, everytime I hear this album it still blows me away with the perfect note choices Hungate makes for the songs. 'Harbor Lights' is a clinic in tasteful use of double-stops. Incredible stuff!!!

A big +1. "Lowdown" is the standard of '70's P-bass tone that I judge all others by....

North Texas has a very good music program. About 4 years ago I recorded a jazz group, all 18 year olds, all had been to summer music camps hosted by UNT. They were killer players and sounded like seasoned veterans in their 50's.
Back to the topic, always loved the tasteful music Toto produced. Killer group in every way. Hungate could keep up with anybody in the business.

Harbor Lights - very tasty.

Listener's notes on Low Down:

Two Bass Tracks. Yep - headphones don't lie.
Two High Hat tracks.

Still tasty, but back in the holiday inn 6 nights week day, made us work awful hard trying to copy that stuffs.
