    David Dyson ain't no joke! I remember seeing a Me'shell segment on PBS (Sessions @ Studio......or something like that) when I lived in NY and dude was in a wicked groove something fierce! Young cat with old school soul & sensibility! I dig!

    Thanks for this!

    I love Meshell! I saw her in concert with David quite a while ago. As wonderful as David is, when Meshell took over on bass duties, it was a whole different thing.. just felt a million times better. She is a true artist on the instrument. I couldn't believe the difference in the feel of the band when she played versus Dyson.

    And... I only dream of being as good as Dyson.

    +1 I swear, I don't know how she does it but she gets such a full sound playing down at the bridge! All I get is Jaco tone! Gah! But she's the reason I'm back to playing 4 strings more! Great bassist and she's a girl!!

    I had a funny moment hanging out with David and gene lake the drummer in that clip a few years ago after a meshell show.We were standing around the venue talking and planing to go get a drink when several very very fine women walked by us,we all paused to appreciate and gene said"it's like that every night;a bunch of fine women but none interested in me or Dave"(makes more sense if you know meshell's core audience)

    The last time I saw her, Jon Maron was on bass. Same thing, when she took over it had a funkier feel, and Jon is also that dude! As for the core audience.......;)
     
  12. A great player and to think, he got started out with New Kids On the Block.:eek:

    David Dyson came and hung out with Pete Skjold a few weeks ago. I was invited to come along, but couldnt make it out that night. Wish I had :(

    Anyhow, if you havent heard it, check out David's new CD.

    Forget EVERYTHING you've ever seen folks. Watch this s**t every morning when you get up and every night before you go to bed.

    There simply is nothing out there right now that is as hip as this is.

    Two words kids....Me Shell.....nuttin more ta say!

    Ok....maybe Gene Lake too.:D

    Thanks for the clip!
    KJung, +1. I saw the bitter tour and it was always groovin, but when she took over the bass, XTRAGroovin. Her time is soooo flexable.
    It's like the time between her qtr notes is an ocean, and she KNOWS every ripple between. Thanks again!

    Anyone know if she played on Citizen Cope's, "If there's Love"? I LOVE the bassline in that song, know that she did some stuff with them, but can't seem to find if that particular song was her.

    Wow! The combination of both of their playing and the singing is so sweet. Meshell's slinky jazz bass w/ the sweet 5 string growl. Thanks for posting.

    Makes you wanna --- practice!
