    Hey Everyone,

    I just wanted to share with you a video I took of Christian playing last night. His solo starts about a minute in and is some of the most impressive bass playing I've ever seen. Enjoy!

    As a non DB player, two bassists make my heart go pitter patter. Christian McBride is one. Didn't even know who he was until I stumbled across him on Sting's All This Time DVD. I have seen it 100 times and I still feel every note he plays.

    The other is Mike Arnipol that hangs out with we mortals here at TB. His work with Patricia Barber speaks to my soul!

    In both cases, their playing is so pure to me. It's like a great opera. Corny I know, but it is the only way that I can describe it.

    When listeners "feel" what you're playing, you got it goin' on !

    Rock stars of the upright as far as I am concerned.

    I love that he quotes Sanford and Son. He is super swingin', thanks for posting.
