    Any of you jazz cats get the opportunity to see John Scofield's current band should check out his bass player,
    Jesse Murphy. I saw two Scofield shows this week
    (Asheville, NC and Knoxville, TN) and this cat really has it going on the bass.

    Plays a 3/4 scale standup and a 60's Precision. Rig is a
    little GK400RB running to a new Mesa Powerhouse 4x10
    cabinet. Talk about tone; this guy has it it spades along
    with some really tasteful groovin' lines.

    Anyone on here seen him (Murphy) before or know anything
    about his past gig history? I'd never seen him or heard of
    him prior to this week.
