Chaka Kahn's present bassist?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by dudemeister, Jun 10, 2002.

  1. Chaka Kahn is going to play at Stockholm Jazz festival 2002. Does anybody know who plays bass on her live performances?
  2. Is it worth checking out?

    Also John Scofield plays earlier that night. He plays together with Joe Lovano, Dave Holland and Al Foster. I've only heard his funkier stuff but I know he also plays jazz. Does anybody know if it'll be funk or jazz?

    If it's still Melvin Davis, I'd go watch. He's a heck of a bass player.

    dear God man...RUN to that show!!! :D That's a serious all star lineup. If it's a jazz show, don't prepare yourself to be knocked out by Chaka Khan's jazz singing because IMO she's not very good. BUT, Melvin Lee Davis is a bad bad man. I don't like Lee Ritenour but I bought his live album just to hear Melvin playing on it.
