This has just filtered over to the UK and I was "tipped off" by JimK - thanks Jim!! So it had loads of articles and interviews with Bass Players and a very interesting piece by Stanley Crouch on "The Place of the Bass". Although it has Jaco on the cover and a feature - the majority of this stuff is about DBers - so I put this here for any acoustic purists who are put off by an electric bassist being on the cover! This is the first issue I have felt compelled to buy and it's really worth having - it is quite expensive in the UK and usually doesn't have much I want, so I read it over a cup of coffee in "Borders and don't usually take it away! Ironically, I picked up the UK equivalent "JazzWise" at the same time, which has a short feature on Marc Johnson, who says "Anyway, people don;t really want bass solos - they're hard to hear; the instrument just doesn't really project. " So in Jazz Times, the Stanley Crouch piece starts with a great eulogy praising Buster Williams's bass solos, while in JazzWise, Johnson is saying people don't want DB solos? Too funny!
