    ...don't forget about Mike Dimin!
    Nice cd, too, Mike!
    (Mike's tone is somewhat similar to Patitucci/Jaco).

    I'll second Gary Willis & Dave Holland.

    How 'bout Oteil Burbridge? Paul Jackson? Buster Williams? Gary King?

    Any else pick up the Jimmy Haslip/Robben Ford/Vinnie Colaiuta disc?

    Sorry Max

    You are on my list to check out but I have been busy and can't find an easy way to buy your CD.

    I know I should e-mail you for details but I'm away from home at the moment and will catch up with things soon

    I think Kai Eckhardt probably deserves a mention too!

    Eddie Gomez (Acoustic legend)
    Steve Swallow (Electric legend)
