    Greetings true believers,

    I'm not sure if anyone else has posted on this but I found out yesterday that Chuck Rainey just released a new cd and is touring to support it.

    So far there are only a few dates listed. Those can be found on Chuck's site at

    Chuck has played on millions of albums including Aretha Franklin and Paul Simon. I got familiar with his playing with his incredible parts on Steely Dan albums esp. Aja and the Royal Scam.

    As I said there are only a few dates listed right now but one of them is my home Boston where Chuck will be playing on March 24th at Johnny D's over in Somerville. So heads up for any New England bassists!

    ...what Paul Simon albums? They must've been from the '60s! ;)

    I was unaware of Rainey's new solo disc...I have one of his solo cds from waaayyy back(on Cobblestone Records, I think).
    Do you know who else in the band?
    If you're a Rainey fan, Aretha's Young, Gifted, & Black & the Flaclk/Hathaway Where Is The Love? albums are a must(in addition to the Steely Dan records). His playing with Quincy Jones is also stellar(IMO).
