    So like it says, any Anthony Hackson fans out there? I'm sitting here listing to Michel Camilo (Tropical Jam) and I have heard his name pop up in while. Anybody have some favorite albums he's on?

    Count me in as an AJ fan!

    One of my favourite AJ albums is: The O'Jays - 'Ship Ahoy'


    An album that many people don't know about is Lalo Schifrin's - 'Black Widow' (recently reissued). The music is dated, but there are some very nice grooves.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    I got introduced to AJ's playing as a youngster before I knew what a bass player was. This was thanks to my father spinning records featuring AJ's work with the O'Jays, Chaka Khan, Simon and Garfunkel, and the soundtrack for the movie version of "The Wiz".

    He's simply one of the finest players working today. The Camilo stuff is among his best work IMO. Here's a good informative site put together by a fellow AJ aficionado:

    For Pop-
    Steely Dan-"Glamour Profession" & "My Rival"(both from Gaucho).
    Donald Fagen-"Ruby, Baby", "I.G.Y."(both from The Nightfly)
    The O'Jays' & Chaka Khan stuff is very happenin', too!

    I agree with Casino.

    The Michel Camilo/French Toast material.

    For something a little more 'free'-
    AJ's Eyewitness/Steve Khan material is very cool...& very difficult to find.

    Those late 70's Chaka Kahn records have some serious AJ grooves on them. Funky stuff.
  8. Another A.J. fan here. Check him out on the DVD "Calle 54".

    Just bought this a couple days ago...where's the English subtitles?

    Anyway, Jackson is cool...but it's El Negro that floored me in that tune.

    The Jerry Gonzalez & The Fort Apache Band clip is my favourite.

    There's not much there to be honest. A few decent photos though:

    This is one of my all time faves. :bassist:
  15. After Sunday, there might be a few more Janet Jackson fans out there... ;) :rolleyes:

    Nah, I actually like the O'Jays, my mate has got loads of their CD's, he's lent me the greatest hits but...I managed to lose it. :bawl:
  16. I saw him performing live at the Puerto Rico Heineken Jazz Fest with Michel Camilo,2 years ago, he's a brilliant bassist,he impressed me big time, any recomended recordings? :bassist:

    good 'ol USA/Tampa fla.
    This DVD Smokes ! Also a well known drummer by the name of Simon Phillips has a instruction video(Although it aint't much of instructing going on) with AJ on it.Good stuff. :bassist:
  19. Totally agree El Negro is awesome on that tune.

    I really love the AJ solo, it took me a couple of listens to actually appreciate what he does on that.

    My current fave spin with AJ playing is Michel Camilo's Triangulo but I agree a lot of his work with Al Di Meola is breathtaking.
