    I would love to know if anyone here knows the late and great Julius Farmer.

    I love his playing.
  2. Julius and I were good friends in New Orleans back in the early 1970s.

    The Wild Magnolias just got cycled through my CD stack after a long time, it's insane how overlooked this cat is.
    Awesome stuff!
  4. I don't know how old this thread is and .. I don't care ... Julius has made a lot of 70s Italian albums great with his playing ... check out the contaminated jazz of Fabio Concato's early vinils ...

  5. His Fretless PJ bass and his jazz have a very distinctive and punchy sound ... truly underrated

    my favourite is always "L'era del cinghiale bianco" by Franco Battiato. tracks like "stranizza d'amuri" and "Il re del mondo" have som wonderful bass sounds and playing, with a precise, middy and smooth sound, the perfect phrasing and everything you might want from a bass in a pop album.
