    I think this is Have You Met Miss Jones, he's getting pretty jiggy with it.

    Willis is just awesome.

    Fabulous.
    Gary Willis is so smart and humbling that it becomes embarassing sometimes.

    Gary is amazing.
    I love when people start to talk about lines on fretless basses being "training wheels" for lousy players.

    Getting jiggy indeed. Seriously, when I see clips like this, I want to hear more jazz on electric bass done by the respected top-tier players like Gary Willis.

    Jeff Berlin just released an album of standards, but it's hard to come by recordings of straight-up jazz on electric bass. You can find clips of clinics or live performances here and there, but they just aren't very many albums.

    Anyway, GW is a bad dude!

    Check this one out. Tribal Tech is one of my all time favorite bands.
