    That was fun. I missed the whole disco era, because I was into fusion at the time. This would have been fun to play live. I like how the 1 usually starts a 16th note earlier. My favorite parts are those eighth note patterns (e.g., measures B7 and B8).

    Lee...this is great!
    When Heatwave was current, I was also a Jazz/Fusion guy. Thing is, I realized I was not Jaco/Stanley & would never have that level of facility (i.e. gifted/talented).
    ;)
    So, this sorta R&B/Soul/Pop was what I gravitated to...as far as playing in bands.
    AWB's early albums + Heatwave's early albums really did it for me in that time frame.
    (BTW, I would not consider either "Disco").
    :D

    I was never any Jaco/Stanley either, and never will be. I only listened to fusion, never played it live. I was in an Allman Brothers cover band in the 70s, and I still get nostalgic about that music. I wasn't sure how to categorize Heatwave. Wikipedia calls it funk/disco, and it wasn't what I think of as funk. It was fun doing the transcription.
    That's one of my favorite aspects of this forum: Listening to new music recommended by bass players.
