hello ingrid , thats a really awesome spirited performance and im guessing the bassist is felix ? the keys guy is great , he does some lovely things at around the 5 min mark on part one . drums , bass it all sounds great ... but was it keys or julius camera ? on a tripod ? shame the bass was not in shot , never mind ... ive realised that ive been visiting this page since 2002 and went to bass camp in 2003 after reading about it here . since then ive met vic wooten so many times at different gigs ... this web site has infulenced me a lot , thanks !! i even won a weeks scholarship to the bass collective at a camp and got to be friends with anthony wellington and visited his place last october for steaks !! all through this internet thing . the internet can be so positive , not all porn and rubbish like some people think . i used to be one of those . thanks and keep sharing !!! mike
part two is full on exellent . the bass sounds like alphonso johnson at the begining of part two , i love all those al `slim` johnson grooves . where was this recorded and when ? great drumming too towards the end , really enjoyed this . ive put up a video of a gig i did last april with 80 year old tap dancer from detroit WILL GAINES , as you will see he nearly has as much energy as this trio . www.myspace.com/michaeledmonds thanks for the great gig clip . mike.
Hello Mike, yes, there is some nice footage of that night. Indeed Felix on bass, Colin on keys, and Julius on drums. Our friend Gingerman generously records the band, this was beginning of Feb. 09. Alligator Alley is small, not enough options to place camera. More videos of same night:
Glad you are making some sense out of this web we weave.... :) Where may I find that video with Will Gaines?
