    Anyone see Pino playing with John Mayer at the Grammy's last night? His feel is up there with the best of them. I never liked that "Daughters" song very much but he added something it needed: a little slippery groove, and some double stops thrown in for good measure :bassist: . I wish I'd taped that. . . did anyone tape it?
     
  2. This was mentioned in another thread, but it was the best part of the show. I would love to know if someone Tivo'ed it and has posted it somewhere.

    I did a quick search but couldn't find anything so I posted this. Didn't mean to be redundant. Yeah, if anyone has it I'd love to get it. Certainly was the highlight for me. A pleasant surprise too, I was watching the show thinking Stevie was going to perform with his band, so getting to see Pino lay it down made the lack of Stevie worthwhile.

    I saw him playing a blues number with John Mayer on that Tsunami Relief benefit concert a few weeks ago. Very cool. I'm even more impressed with Mayer's decision to dirty things up lately. He's a great musician, but I've always found his cd's to be too sappy.

    Ya I saw it.
    Pino just knows how to lay it down.
    Steve Jordan was right on too.
    Maybe John will tour with them?-WISH-

    Mayer's regular bassist David LaBruyere is a badass too, I really like his playing a lot :bassist: I think Pino might be commited to the Who for the summer.
     
  8. The cool thing about Pino with John Mayer:

    Pino played in a manner that complimented the song, showed class, did not overplay, yet there was no mistake that he loves to play the bass.

    He would have done the same on a fretless.

    Cheers to Pino. He has the key to it all regardless of who is in the spotlight.

    I disagree....Pino hasn't played fretless in a very long time, yet he is more in demand than ever. He has one of the best feels of whats right or wrong for a song that I have ever heard. He has matured as a player by playing less notes, and his use of space as on D'angeloo's 'Voodoo' C.D. is such a lesson in groove, that it's what bassplaying is all about to me..just my two pennies :cool:

    I just saw this the other day this is the problem with being on the other side of the pond, pino is brilliant everytime I hear him he makes me want to practice, as opposed to the really flashy players who make me want to sit in the corner and cry.

    I did think it was funny to see the drummer with like 1/4 of a kit and then pino and john using what looked like huge amps.

    and finally did you see the length of Pino's fingers OMG.

    All I can say is wow.

    It would have been better if you could have heard him in the mix. I was disapointed.

    Pino is the epitome of what a great support bassist should be!
    I saw him last year with the Who, and he played a different style than he has been doing on all the neo-soul he does now.
    He does what the job calls for and still puts his artistic stamp on it :cool:
     
  16. Pino really is the man! I forgot all about the D'angelo disk. I'll have to dig that one out. Does anyone know for certain if it was Kevin Brandon (Brandino) backing up Alicia Keys? I believe he was playing the Thumb 6er.

    I missed it. I watched a litte of the Grammy's... decided it wasn't worth wasting my time, and turned the TV off. Why did I have to do that?
