    B.B. King – The Thrill is Gone. A testament to the power of a simple but effect bass line.

    Here is a dear friend of mine Jerry Jemmott on bass who in a magazine interview Jaco Pastorius stated influenced him on the bass. Jerry and Jaco later collaborated in NYC on a bass instruction DVD for Drummer’s Collective.
    In memory of the passing Wally Gator Watson on Sept. 3, 2010. I had the pleasure of hiring and playing with both Jerry and Wally for a jam gig in 2000. That’s the last time we saw each other.We were kicking. Jerry on bass like a truck barreling down the highway,Wally like thunder on the drum and me on the guitar. We rocked the house. Had it not been for Wally’s passing I would not have searched 4 Jerry and found this video. King Curtis was my inspiration for learning and playing the sax. RIP Wally. Nov 9th 1951- Sept 3rd 2010.
