I was given a CD of Brian's a while back. An amazing player.

That was awesome! Haven't really been a fan of jazz, but I've been watching \ listening to it a bit more just to take in the bass on it and I'm slowly becoming a bit of a jazz fan. Does that mean I'm getting old? :P Haha Some of the young guys at work give me a bit of stick - Jazz is for old men!!! Na. bugger them! :D

The guy has got serious chops, but I more enjoyed it more when he has playing the bassline at the beginning, not hamming it up with the horns.

His upright playing is just as pyrotechnic(al) -- check out Wood and Wood II. Incredible stuff.

Wood is great, especially the solo on "For my father" . Wood 2, not so good apart from his great whistling on "Four brothers" , and his "Metal" album, I didn't like. Brian is a magnificent bass player and let's get away from the "support the song" thing, when your at home your playing for pleasure, so bugger the song, play for yourself because, unless your a star you spend a lot more time on your instrument by yourself. Brian Bromberg is obviously a busy session player, but he takes a lot of joy out of taking the bass out of its traditional role and he enjoys it good one Brian.
