  1. Some of you may have heard of him. He's doing many workshops and he's writting for a few magazines.
    But the most important thing about him is probaly his very unusual ''band'' . His wife is singing and he's playing bass. The thing i like the most about his playing is the fact that it's very musical and not wanky .

    I saw him for the first time at the European Bass Day last month in Viersen (is that where the picture was taken?). I had read about him and expected a "freakish" show, but this guy is really funky and smooth. Excellent combination with the vocalist. One of the best acts on the EBD, too bad the audience was so small.

    I really dig Reimer and Setzer,Setzer is a very talented Bassist and they compliment each other.I've been working with a female vocalist for years(not the vocalist I performed with at the 04 Detroit Bass Fest) we just recently took a break but will resume rehearsals soon.
     
  8. just got his cd last week from cdbaby and they're great, i cant take it out of my cdplayer, i've learned a lot of things from him. a must have for a bass player.
     
  9. Finally some people who agree with me :) IMO he's one of the best bassists right now.
