    there's a steve smith/vital information album with kai eckhardt on it that i'm trying to find, but i don't know which one. there's a song that starts with a great slapping bass solo, i had it on tape about 13 years ago and i used to listen to it a lot, it was very influential on my approach to slap playing.

    so, can any of you guys help me out? i mention smash because you were talking about mr. eckhardt in your hotwire thread, so i thought you might be a particular fan and would know this.

    Got Fiafiaga(Eckhardt & Tim Landers on bass) & Global Beat(Tim Landers only) on cd.

    Fiafiaga's title tune has Kai doing a nasty, nasty slap & pop bit after the initial chant stops.

    Do you want the whole cd or just that song? The song was called Baba Luwaie I believe although I have mangled the spelling I'm sure. I have a copy of the song. PM me if interested.
