Review: just when I think I have heard it all, this virtuosic bass player comes along with a whole new approach that is both engaging and spellbinding. It doesn't hurt to have some other virtuosos in the field to jam with. Terrific originals mixed with brilliantly reworked classics. All killer-no filler!
