I'm watching BET Jazz while finishing up a song I'm writng, and they air a Kirk Whalum concert. Halfway through he says, "I wanna bring out someone special, my 18 year old son. We're going to do a song he wrote called 'Seasons'." I figure it would be some little ditty, but nothing too special. His son comes out and straps on a Ken Smith 5, and plays some of the most melodic lead basslines! So much for judging the book by the cover, eh? He did a nice solo that utilized about 4 techniques, but, IMO, he struggled a teeny bit during the slap section, but you can tell that he was good. ANYTHING can go wrong when you're live. I was impressed by the young squire.
