    I was just on the Yellowjackets website checkin' out some photos in the gallery. The latest couple of concerts had Zev Katz on bass. What happened to Jimmy Haslip?
     
  2. no, he's still in as far as I know, jimmyhaslip.com has stuff about an original YJ reunion w/Robben Ford and Ricky Lawson. It seems to me he had to take some time off for a personal matter, I used to read the guestbook...

    anyways, I saw them about a year ago in a kinda small venue, and Haslip was smokin' better than ever!!

    I saw them on 'The Spin' tour in Blues Alley, Washington DC, 2 nights in a row. I was so close I could've changed the settings on Jimmy's amp (literally). It was a religious experience.

    Sounds like we were at the same show... in about the same seat;)

    Actually I was closer to Will Kennedy and that was an education.
