    Anyone remember this guy? not THE James Jamerson, but his son? He did a lot of session work in the 70's abd 80's, and had a disco Group called Chanson (referenced in the link I provided).

    Anyone hip?

    Chanson is what I remember most clearly. I know he also played "What's Going On" for that Jamerson instructional book that Dr. Licks put out a few years ago. I also seem to remember him playing at least a few tracks for the Crusaders.
