Mark Lettieri Trio, Featuring Wes Stephenson: Slide Rule

Wes Stephenson has one of the deepest pocket grooves I’ve ever heard. Here’s a clip of the Funky Knuckles bassist holding it down for guitarist Mark Lettieri on “Slide Rule,” live at the RBC in Dallas, Texas.

Stephenson forms a tight bond with drummer Mike Mitchell for the song’s main riff as they back Lettieri up, and his solo at the 3:56 mark that will take you for a ride.
