    Joel Smith is amazing.
    I'm floored everytime I listen to Kim Burrell...
    i was wondering if anybody knew what bass he played on those albums? either studio or live?
    probably his F Bass, but I was wondering if anybody has seen him live, etc.
    or anybody know him from the Jazz School in the bay area?

    it's been a long time since someone's sound/playing has moved me this much~!

    And it is amazing he is from a Pentecostal church in California. I do know he played for CLC Youth Choir - I have some of the CD's They seem to produce some great bass players in that area.

    I'm proud to say that Joel is now an MTD 635 player! I had the pleasure of introducing Joel to Mike Tobias myself, and Mike made him a beautiful ash bass with a maple neck 6 string. He is also Epifani endorsee. He is still one of the most incredible bassists ever! MTD4LYFE!!!

    I thought it was Tommy Brown that did all the bass on the CLC Youth Choir albums-I know it was Tommy on Live...In the Spirit. Just wondering too??

    Joel is the man! He played on the Agape project here in NJ last year. I was told by a friend he had a Smith. It's cats like Joel and Terrance Palmer that keep me chasing this bass thing!
