    It was Braylon, he's played with her since shortly after high school. I went to the same school as him and got to hear him play often in the jazz bands around school. (It was an all Arts school). He is a great guy, and was a monster player even then.

    The bassist on that album was the fantabulous Hubert Eaves IV.

    Correct! His dad is sort of famous too. He was 1/2 of the group D-Train f/ James 'D-Train' Williams.

    I heard this album in a bar several years ago and went out and bought it the next day. It's been in regular rotation in my CD player ever since. The drummer and bassist are both top notch. I just wish she'd do another one.. I like her music but the Live album kills the studio albums.

    This is seriously one of my all time favorites! "other side of the game" is just too smooth. Never knew who played on it though I only have a copy not the original disc. Good thread!

    I just grabbed that disc on the recomendations here.
    Very nice! (see heath- I listen and respect your opinion, we may disagree about Will Lee, but you made me pick this one up!)
    My only complaint, and trust me it's minor, is most of the tunes are mid tempo and slower and not many except "Stay" are uptempo.
    I can only take the sidestick on the snare for so long!!!
    But it is a groovy ass disc-whew!!!
    And Poogie Bell!! One of my fav drummers.
