    The Detroit Jazz Festival is coming up (Labor day weekend) and once again has a great line up for bass players. On Friday we'll have the Funk Brothers w/ Bob Babbit on Bass. On Saturday We'll have the McCoy Tyner Trio and Zwainul Syndicate. On Monday we have Randy Brecker/Bill Evans group w/ Victor Baily on bass and McCoy Tyner. All of these concerts are FREE, a great time in downtown Detroit. If any one is interested I'll probably be their every day but Sunday, their are good local players down there all day long. Please PM me for a possible GTG. Maybe we can meet at LDS and head down as a group?
  2. Is Zawinul syndicate with Linley Marthe on bass?
    In that case, I strongly advice you to attend. He is just fantastic, and perhaps the best live bassist I've ever seen.

    And if anybody feels so inclined to check out the Northview High School jazz band on Monday, the bassist just might be Eskimo. I'd like to get a chance to meet somebody from the forum finally.
