Is it just me or has anyone else here been to see major acts perform live and either could not hear the bass or if you could, it sounded like a bunch of low end mud? Now, don't tell me its because of bad bass tone or the amp onstage is too loud or any of the other typical sound man's excuses. I'm talking about Anthony Jackson and John Myung and others of their caliber. I just came from the Atlanta Jazz Festival where I saw AJ playing with Michael Camilo. Great show, but I couldn't hear anything above about 200 Hz. coming from AJ's bass. I could see his hands playing lots of complex figures with what appeared to be style and finesse, but I couldn't hear a note of it! Same with John Myung at a DT concert about a year ago. I went to hear him, mainly. Guess what? I couldn't hear a note he played! Not one all night! And in both cases the front of house guy was just standing there looking like Joe Cool. At the jazz fest tonight, we were standing right by the sound man and I heard people going up and complaining to him about it. He just shrugged his shoulders like "hey, tough $*&@! I am really tired of going to shows and not being able to hear the bass player. I mean I am sick of it! Sorry to vent on you guys, but I had to get it off my chest. Anybody else feel this way?
