    Always dug what Clive brought to the music, a very Jamerson groove in a rock band. Also check out Brian Auger's 'Happiness Heartaches' album where Clive is in the rhythm section with the great Lenny White.

    Thanks for yet another suggestion, Jerry.
    You recommended the 1st Hummingbird album in a previous Clive Chaman thread...you are putting me in the Poor Haus.

    Jim, these guys have the download for a little over three bucks. eMusic | eMusic

    They also have the early Steve Khan stuff at a great price.

    I had the pleasure of taking some lessons from him. Super guy.
    Hummingbird was wonderful. "Fire and Brimstone" is one of my soundcheck favorites. Groovy.

    Thanks, Jerry.
    I bought Hummingbird (used cd) after the last Chaman thread...& have had the Khan stuff for ages (thanks to Audiophile Imports). ;)

    i love Clive with Brian Auger and with Jeff Beck. His stuff with Auger is off the chain though, happiness heartaches is just sick bass playing.

    damn, that is awesome. what were the lessons like? did you get an idea of his general approach to the instrument? was he trained on upright? man, i love his playing.

    His lessons were quite fundamental. Emphasis on scales, variations, arpeggios, and timing. Groove was a huge thing with him.
    Biggest take-away was him telling me, "If you make a mistake, make it loud. Only you, and a couple other people will really notice it, so just smile and keep playing." Took a lot of the pressure off.
    No idea about his upright playing.
