    Does anybody know who is playing bass on Al's current tour?

    I'm hoping it's AJ, but I can't find any info.

    AJ did the latest studio recording and some dates on the tour
    but as of late Al has been using pick up Bass players and when none are avalable the keyboardist has been providing the Bass Bass player that Al has in mind is Florida Bassist Richard Drexler.Al is freshly Back from Turkey and South Africa and will be heading back out on tour in May and taking a Break in June.

    good 'ol USA/Tampa fla.
    believe it or not Richard Drexler is just as good on piano as he is own bass.I use to see him with a band called Common Ground on St.Pete beach in Fla.and he was a serious piano player back around the mid to late 80's

    I saw Richard Drexler play as 1/3rd of the Jeff Berlin trio. He played upright bass and piano. Smoked on both.

    Yeah they were here ten days ago. It was an amazing concert. First McLaughlin Remeber Shakti and then this.. I am feeling lucky. :D There wasn't a bassist though. Al a pianist and two percussionists one being gumbi ortiz who owned the show from time to time. He was truly amazing...
