I got Rodney Whitaker's latest, "Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow", and I simply can't stop listening to it. The song writing is superb, much more than just vehicles for the bass to blow over. Victor Goines is exceptional on many instruments, every bit of James Carter's equal. Does anyone know anything about Whitaker's set-up? I love his sound; very wooden, maybe less "electric" sounding than Christian McBride. I think he is director of the jazz program at Michigan State.
