    Man, I saw this group last weekend that did more than blow me away... These cats where so on their game it is silly.

    The Bassist and the Steel Drummer were the lead players and super clean and tight. the bassist played two-handed most of the evening on a Zon 519 with a Greg Curbow Rockwood neck... The Steel Drummer was so musical, think Othello Molineaux from those Jaco big band gatherings... This guy had mad chops...

    Anyways the instrumentation is:

    Danny Silvestri (bass)
    Marlon Patton (drums)
    Mike Dixon (steel drum/Fender Rhodes)
    Chris Costigan (sax)
    Kevin Hyde (trombone/keys)


    If y'all want to hear a really innovative bassist, listen to these sound clips!!!

    Exactly... Saw them a couple weekends ago and my jaw was on the ground the whole evening.


    I'm amazed TB'ers aren't blown away... especially all the cats that are into Adam Nitti.
