    agreed. Southside, Borgo, Geno, WCO.... Read the WIKI of Tony Williams. I went to it to remember the song I played in that fusion band.

    Tony died at 51.....fukkin pisses me off. All that to offer and just a shame.

    I had no idea. imagine playing with Miles Davis at 18. Think he had chops?

    RIP MR Williams.

    Just found this double album on EBAY. I owned this album in 1978 or so, bought it at "record World". ALL the great bassists are on it. Will convert it to CD and then have it mounted for my office. I dont own a turntable anymore. Ill make it my avatar for a while possibly.

    Ray Brown is the shiz.

    His command and coolness really shown through just in one measure in comparison to the gent he was schooling.

    LOL. The look on that guy's face when Ray brown asks him to play it in another key. Clearly, he had it all worked out in F before Brown throws him a curve.

    If you youtube it...there are actually 5 parts. A young british girl wants to play Cherokee in another part. Plays it well actually. He then said...when you can play it in every key, thats the answer or something to that affect.

    The blues in F, C, Bb. No problem. After that , us novices are struggling.

    We forget how "professional" these guys are.

    I studied for a summer with Jamil Nasser who knew Ray Brown personally. Made a statement that when Ray moved to California, 1/2 the session bass players lost their jobs. It was tongue and cheek but reality was he worked on every hollywood studio etc.

    With all the talent involved, this is a fun video. I had the great honor of seeing Kirk at a very late show at the Village Gate somewhere in the late 70s. Check solo beginning at 1:58.

    McCoy Tyner is the real genius in this video.

    Also, I lol'd at the raised fist introduction. That guy looked like quite the character.

    A complete madman. One of the most entertaining, and intense, shows I ever saw.

    Crazy...he's playing a saprano and barry sax at the same time?

    McCoy Tyner is so young in that piece.




    A little too "Cacophony" for my taste however.

    McCoy Tyner really is the driving force there with his unique style of playing in 4ths.

    When I saw Kirk, he had three saxes going at once. Insane.

    Been playing guitar for 18 years. Blues, southern/classic rock. I can play some jazz but I'm not good enough to sit in and improvise via chord changes and such. I'm self taught, took an AP music theory class in high school and barely learned anything. Had a guitar teacher who was good when I was 18 but really I ran out of money for that.

    Been mostly focusing on singer songwriter stuff for the last 8-10 years. That's where the money is. There's always someone better than you that can session out and join a band on the road. I decided that I'd rather be the guy leading the band plus I like writing songs better than jamming on someone other guy's work.
