    ... the funkiest bassist currently in TV!!!

    Saturday Night Live hasn't been good in years... but there's one thing that's definitely worth tuning in for -- James Genus. That guy SLAYS!!! If any bassist out there wants to be inspired, just tune in and listen to Genus play the opening theme and in and our of commercial breaks. In the pocket... tasteful... funky... he makes it look easy.

    Also, if you ever see the re-air listed, check out the Austin City Limits from a year or two ago with Herbie Hancock. Genus is in his band and he plays FIERCE!!!

    I saw him with Herbie a few years ago. Herbie joked that SNL has to get a sub when he tours with James...sort of like SNL is his main gig but can't compete with Herbie :) Also check this out for some of his upright playing...awesome bassist and fellow Virginian:
