    Just wondering if anyone has ever seen BB on a stage interacting with other musicians. A while back I had the Carvin "Creating your own bass sound" video and it was little more than a Carvin Infomercial hosted by BB (Small surprise).

    I got rid of that video a long time ago, but I recall some interesting playing, but I'd like to hear from someone whos seen him in a more natural setting.

    Thanks for refreshing my memory! I would say maybe ...10 years ago, Bunny played at a very small venue in LA- I believe the drummer he used was- damn! can't think of HER name-someone help me- she played w/ the band on one of the late night shows- afro-american- young- very talented-
    drawing a blank!!! I honestly forget the other ensemble members, I think it was a quartet or quintet.
    They started out w/ Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance"- Kinda rare appearance; I suppose BB mostly does sessions or teaches, I think he's still on staff here in town at LA music Academy.

    Long while ago, but they were very tight, all LA session players, nice sound, & Bunny was a very
    congenial "leader"- really a treat in that the club was super small & intimate-
    Who was that drummer?? It's driving me crazy!!!
    (I think she has two names, like "Sara Jessica Parker"

    Never Mind!!!
