    I was just ordering Alain's CD "Just Call Me Al " at his website www.alaincaron.com and took a look at his basses page. There is a song that is being played as you oogle his F's.

    Does anyone know what song that is...or better yet which CD that is from? I have Play so it's not on that one. I just really like the tune...real simple but it really sticks in my head. :eek:

    I have Le Band, Rhythm 'N Jazz & Play...
    It's been awhile since I've spun 'em, so-
    Le Band is very Fusion-y; I doubt this tune is from that album.
    Rhythm 'N Jazz is my favourite...pretty sure it's not on there.
    Since you have already eliminated Play...could it be this tune is on Call Me Al?
    (My guess is "The 'F' File"). ;)

    He's really hammering out the 1/8th notes on that bit, eh?

    Yes! Fat Cat....that's what it is. Cool, thanks so much! I just ordered the CD.

    Alain is the man and his F Basses sound so awesome. I just wish that I had a quarter of his talent.

    Have you seen Sting's '80s "movie", Bring On The Night?
    Same thing; Branford Marsalis(who stole the show) was sayin' when he first met Sting he said, "...man, you're one bad mutherf***er".
    Then it cuts to Sting recalling this event; yes, he had this quizzical look on his face like "Is that supposed to be a compliment"?
    Branford said, "That's like the ultimate compliment".
