    I recently bought this cd (for $1) and it came without the liner notes. I checked AMG.com and it stated that Abraham Laboriel, Benny Rietveld, and someone by the name of "Foley" played on it. Is that correct? Does anyone know who plays on which tracks? I'm not really familiar with any of their playing (i know, i probably should be shot.)
     
  2. rietveld plays/played with santana... i know he did on "supernatural" at least.

    Review: At times, a reviewer comes across a recording that is so unusual it is hard to define it completely because it is uniquely different, and such is the case with this soundtrack for the movie, "Dingo," with Miles Davis on trumpet and Michel Legrand on piano. Those who like jazz know the credentials of both men and will be pleasantly surprised at their joint efforts on this excellent jazz CD. Also, there are other guest musicians that get in their creative notes, such as Kei Akagi and Alan Oldfield on pianos; Chuck Findley, Nolan Smith, Ray Brown, George Graham and Oscar Brashear on trumpets; Mark Rivett on guitar; John Bigham, Ricky Wellman, Harvey Mason, and Alphonse Mouzon on drums/percussion; Benny Rietveld, Foley, Abraham Laboriel on bass and lead bass; Buddy Collette, Jackie Kelso, Marty Krystall, Bill Green, Charles Owens, and John Stephens on woodwinds; Vince de Rosa, David Duke, Marnie Johnson, and Richard Todd on French horns; Kenny Garrett on saxophone; Jimmy Cleveland, Dick Nash, George Bohanan, Thurman Green, and Lew McGreary on trombones.
    This is a special CD that will invoke special feelings at different times of listening. Some of the sixteen selections include: "Kimberly Trumpet," "The Departure," "Dingo Howl," "The Dream," "The Music Room," "Club Entrance." "The Jam Session," "Going Home." The music is arranged by Michel Legrand. The listener will find his or her own favorites on this CD. Three that I kept coming back to listen to were: "Going Home" which features Miles Davis, "The Jam Session" which features both Miles Davis and Chuck Findley, and "Dingo Howl" which features Chuck Findley. Listeners will also find Miles Davis' performance on "The Dream" one of his finest, and one that lingers in the mind with its melody. Get this one and enjoy! Excellent!

    I didn't know Miles was involved...seeing the bassists involved makes sense, though(Reitveld & Foley were probably, at the time, playing bass with Miles).


    Foley usually played "lead" bass; a 4-string Steinberger played with maximum distortion. I thought he was a guitarist the first time I heard/saw him play.
    BTW, a 2nd bassist played "bass" during Foley's tenure with Miles.

    Reitveld is still touring with Santana; at least that's what I'm told(Santana played here about 2 weeks ago).


    Laboriel is a monster that goes back to the '70s...

    well, the first five tracks sound like DB, 6 sounds like DB, but not like the others( more midrange ?), DB 7 & 8, 9 is fretless electric bass with round wounds, 13 and 14 sounds like a fretted an active electric bass (there is some slapping), 16 has the same fretless bass sound as 9. Does that help? I didn't here any distorted guitar/bass.
