Default Re: "Red Snapper" (Live In Studio) - The Airmen Of Note featuring Bobby Shew

Howdy Ralph,

That is the absolute truth!
I was listening to the video and had much the same reaction. I've watched a number of their videos (and have all the recordings I can get my hands on) and these guys are simply amazing.

Just for kicks a while back I picked up their "Bass tryout package". From some classical bass pieces to various other genres, solo as well as comp, written as well as ad lib, arco and pizz - it was a demanding ball of wax
They rock (and swing ), and inspire me to work harder at what I do, too

Thanks for introducing me to the Note, Ralph. I hope others enjoy them too.

Music is to the soul like water is to green growing things.
