Fantastic. I needed that...he’s one of those players, I love hearing how he responds to how he hears the world... if that makes any sense.

I saw him on one of the tours he and Stanley Clarke and Victor Wooten did; and he had probably the best live bass sound I have ever heard. The only other artist I have seen who sounded so much dramatically superior to recordings was B.B. King. That was before this Sire endorsement; I assume he was playing a Sadowsky, a beautiful bass, that costs several times what the Sire sells for.
