    I have "e" with the JOhansson Brothers backing him up. He is a great bassist.

    ...he's waaaaayyy out there!
    I think I have ABSRACT LOGIC w/ Shawn Lane(this guy IS ridiculous)& Kofi Baker(Ginger's son). Basically, the entire disc is one long improvisation...like a lot of Hellborg's stuff(he also has some discs w/ Jeff Sipe of The Aquarium Recsue Unit on cans).
    Anyway, from what I've heard, a new Hellborg band/disc is due out soon(rumor has it that the material is actually "composed" this time).

    Elegant punk is a good solo album. Nice version of Little Wing.

    Time is the enemy is a great live album.

    Aram of the 3 rivers is a bit of a strech. If you like the whole tone scales the short dude sings on the new Sting album, you will like Aram.... Recorded live in Syria.
