I just got turned on to this Francois Rabbath album by a friend. Wow. Really great - just bass and drums. Fantastic energy and playing. I love the 60's sound to the recording and the great hall reverb, and the bass is sometimes overdubbed on top of himself creating a full and driving sound. I can't stop listening to it. I've only had it for a few days, but it's impacting me in a way that not many albums have in quite a while. I've been playing about 20 years, and in my earlier days I found more stuff that blew me away - now I guess I'm getting old and jaded This could end up ranking with Chico Hamilton's "The Dealer" (Richard Davis on Bass), Dave Holland's "One's All" and the Michael Moore/Bill Charlap Duo CD as my top bass-playing recording influnces! I searched around this fourm subtopic and haven't seen this particular album mentioned. Has anyone out there heard it and if so, do you have any suggestions for other albums in the ballpark that I'd dig?
