Hi bass folks. Just a warm hello to all of you from Marciac, France, where there's a huge jazz festival at the time. I'm here for work, but it's more like holidays to bathe in music all day long and meet all these great artists (backstage all access pass, guys !) I'm always astonished how much you can learn just watching a great bass player on stage. Do this as often as you can !When you can have a chat with him after the gig it's even better. A couple of really good bands and solo artists down here. Keith Jarret, Bobby McFerrin, Diana Krall, and more to come. McFerrin has Richard Bona in his band. Do you know about this wonderful bass player ? A kind of Jaco spirit hovering up there if you see what I mean... And he's a damn cool guy too. I would not say the same about some million record selling artist I met here, if you still see what I mean... Damn money !
