    Jimmy Haislip, Robben Ford, and Vinnie Colaiuta are doing shows in California this December. For those not familiar with any or all of these fellas, go to this show anyway, you will not be disappointed...some real heavyweights here! If you are near San Francisco check them out at Yoshi's in Oakland. Incredible small jazz venue with no obstructed sight lines and great sound...oh yeah, and sushi!

    Not sure where to post this but since it's about a bassist (partly) I stuck it here.

    I saw Robben play with the Yellowjackets in detroit about 4 or 5 years ago... at the magic bag in ferndale actually. It was amazing.... Bob Mintzer (sp?) had a previous engagement, so Robben sat in.... he had about 5 music stands around him, and he read through the gig. You wouldn't have even known he wasn't a regular memeber (although he was an original memeber).

    BTW, Jimmy was freakin incredible. I got to meet him afterwards, and he's was as nice a guy as he is a great bassist.
