    Wow! Great tune and great performances!

  6. See – you CAN play a bass solo without popping and slapping all over the place!

  7. I always smile at the tooth brush holding Metheny’s atrap on! He broke it at a gig and the temporary repair lasted for decades!

  8. The whole band is great. The bassist lays down a very nice groove. Very smooth.
