He was playing with the John Beasley Trio, John Beasely on piano, Billy Hart on drums and Patitucci on acoustic Bass. Let me first say that Billy Hart is one serious mo-fo on the drums. This guy can play vigorously without beating the crap out of the drums! The way he controls the dynamics of those drums is phenomenal. As for Patitiucci, I liked the way he sounded tonight, his tone, accompaniment and soloing. Tonight is the first time a saw a double bass with a separate mounting peg for the tailpiece cable, in other words the cable was not wrapped around the endpin but around a peg in front of it. I don't know what kind of bass it is, but it was quite beautiful. He was playing with a walter woods, what looked like an 8" cabinet and using a mic setup that I haven't seen before. The mic was on a boom that was somehow mounted to the body of the bass. The mic element was pointing directly at the body of the bass just below the bridge on the bass bar side. Anyone seen this contraption before? These guys put a on a very good show tonight.
