    Rafael Saadiq is a musician/singer who should be way bigger and more popular than he is. He also surrounds himself with outstanding players too.

    I really like his stuff.

    Awesome! For some nice blues, check out Raphael's guitarist Josh Smith's work. Especially his last album with bass work by Saadig.

    All of his work with D'angelo is nothing short of amazing.
     
  8. I am confused how he takes off the bass and hands it to a bandmember around 9:55 but the bassline keeps playing, and in fact you can clearly hear an ascending lick happen while it's in the middle of being handed over. By no means of am I accusing him of faking it to a recorded track but....what's up with that black magic?

    Maybe that's not the bassline I'm hearing but a keyboard line...or an octaved guitar line...but in any case the bass SOUND doesn't drop out when he stops playing...
     
  9. my mistake, sounds different thru headphones instead of this laptop....carry on
