I got to hear and hang with Ed Fuqua last nite, he was playing with the Jon Raney trio at Cobi's Place in Manhattan. Very nice cat-much nicer in person than his curmugeonly TB personna! Ed swings hard too and is very loose with his axe. Great tone and judging from his time he's spent an hour or two playing with a metronome. Cobi's place has a sweet intimate vibe and if you can definately check it out. Ed is playing there again May 18 with what appears to be an interesting band-perhaps he'll tell us about it. Don-where were you?
