    Anyone heard of the afore mentioned band?
    They seem to be a jazz/rock/funk fusion band with a very cool sound. 3 piece and all 3 members really shine in their recordings (Some really cool bass solo's). They also have a number of weather report covers that have been done very well!

    I'm not affiliated with them, but was just very impressed with their music.

    I just discovered them today.

    I didn'ts see your original thread, but I decided to see if anyone else discussed them, and there was your thread.

    I love their stuff. It really hits the spot for me. Fantastic.
    I'm going to have to get that DVD they are talking about when it is available.

    Folks - check them out. Great bass playing.

    i have all of their cds (except for the live one) and ordered their dvd. so, as you can see, i like them. :)

    i think the band name fits the music perfectly.

    also, the moment you realize that the bass player plays a lot of that stuff with two handed tapping (chords + bassline) you may appreciate the ease with which he presents his lines even more.
    there are occasions (some melodies) where it sounds a bit struggling, but overall it's cool!
