He was at the Regattabar playing acoustic and electric basses with sax (john ellis) and drums (marcus gilmore). Very serious playing done by all parties. JP was running an AMT to his aguilar amp and 12" cab -- i think he was running a Realist to the house PA. I was sitting in the back of the room most of the night, but when a table cleared up right in front i grabbed it for the last three tunes. What a difference! Man, the folks at the Regattabar gotta get their sound system happening, b/c what was coming through the PA was bunk -- bass wasn't loud enough and the things were just poorly defined all around. If i hadn't moved up front it would've been kind of a dissapointing show. The electric bass through the house was actually worse than his DB. ugh. Although he's not one of my top fav's, but JP was def laying it down, played some killer solos came across as a humble and likable guy. I was really impressed with John Ellis and Marcus Gilmore (a bass player's dream drummer!) as I wasn't familiar with those guys. Nice little trio. Check em out when they come to your hood.
