I met Kai the other week and he really inspired me in lots of ways and I hope one day I'll be able to play as eloquently and as beautifully as he does - he was playing fretless with his eyes shut and it sounded wonderful. He has lots of cool new stuff happening and is releasing a new track online soon - he's also filmed and produced an instructional DVD which I'll probably be buying as he showed me some great ideas on rhythm and harmony - plus he's nicest, coolest, bass cat you'll ever meet. He's one of the great's to emerge in the last 15 or so years so have a look and listen here http://www.kaizone.com/movies.html - and if you don't already own a copy of the John McLaughlin Trio "Live at the Royal Festival Hall" (from 1989) it's a classic album and is full of superb bass playing. Apologies for the enthusiasm - he's just got me thinking about what I do and how I can improve it - and that's really important. Cheers Mike PS I have some video clips of him jamming at the London Guitar Show - I'll try and upload them to You Tube soon.
