Is this the best performance ever?

I'm spellbound by these three videos.... I've always thought AJ was the best bar none, and this confirms it... in my opinion....

No doubt he is a master, but as soon as Gadd turns up in a video all my attention goes there!

I like the fact that you are digging it though, not one of my fave's but a true innovator.

yes he is a wicked player marty ,i agree with Dan but i also need to enjoy the music as a whole at the same time and i cant even watch all 3 vids in their entirety as i am obviously not musically enlightened enough to appreciate it ? make sense ? im just a mere peasant in these repects :lol:

the dudes bass is like the width of a cricket bat,i wouldn't get past mid wicket if i tried,or be caught at first slip,but thanks for sharing mate :wink:

there is no such thing as a best bass player
but if there is then it's Mr Anthony Jackson :)

I'm only familiar with the MP Tri clip, punters should check out the whole gig it's a pretty special gig
I got a shock when I realized MP's was a dwarf / spinal issues :shock:

Not for me.
Just not into that style of music.
Mind you, I didn't listen all the way through... it was too much for me, sorry.

Hey Foal, I never realised that either. I've had a MP cassette for15 years (remember cassettes?) and I never knew. He's a beautiful pianny player.
Jazzbass... horses for courses. I love this stuff. That version of A Train gives me wood..... :lol:
