    I came across this forgotten (by me) little gem while perusing '80s music. The bass part caught my ear (naturally). Simple 8th note groove with made of octaves and little half step climbs that really creates a sense of forward motion.

    The I noticed it's Nathan East. This is the sort of line that he could do in his sleep, but so tasty and a good example of just playing what the song needs.

    ...maybe "simple 1/8th notes", but-
    His phrasing, not starting on the "1", etc. Very cool.

    I never knew that was him!

    I don't care what anybody says. That song is a jam.
