    Whaddya think? He's Dave Koz's stage bassist (and just got a few cuts on the "The Dance" album). Any fans out there? He's a real kick to watch in concert.

    Bill Sharpe is a phenomenon! I've been to Dave Koz concerts just to watch Mr. Sharpe spin his magic! I am definitely a big fan. Mr. Sharpe has the professional skills and the confidence to play with his audience. Music is second nature to him. He has fun and that is projected to the audience! He has a tremendous stage presence! His technical skills are out of this world! Without question, Bill Sharpe is the best bassist in the business!

    Absolutely! The "Rubberhand Man" as he is affectionately called is quite entertaining to watch! Excellent player as well! Is he still playing those Tyler basses?

    I'm not a huge Koz fan, but I went to one of his shows and really dug Bill Sharpe's playing. He had the great Gerry Brown on drums as well, killer rhythm section!
    Like Kenny G, Koz shows are so much better than his recorded output.
