    saw him twice at jazz standard last week. man, what a great dude. he was very happy to take pictures and chat with anybody who wanted too after each set i saw him do. friendly, amazing man, with no ego whatsoever. he would be just as likely to ask me about my technique as i would be to ask him. thats the vibe he gives off.

    his band and his sound were just off the hook. he was using a little mark amp with a markbass 2x10" (or maybe 12") cabinet. great sound, punchy boutique bridge pickup sound with enough subs to throw down for a reggae band. well almost.

    this was recorded with a zoom H4n placed on the front corner of the stage, more or less in front of richard. his rig was up on top of the house rig that im sure was not plugged in. PM me if you'd like to hear more, i might have bootlegs from two full sets. (depending on weather or not its allowed to share them here, im pretty sure richard is OK with bootleggers though)

    I just love great musicians with a great personality
  6. Wonderful! Thanks for posting that. Amazing person, amazing player.

    I've been enjoying his live disc lately, although he could have done better with the title (Bona Makes you Sweat):p
  7. Rockin' the Fodera single-cut! Or rather I should say "jazzin'".

    I know you are, but what am I?
    Bona is amazing. Thanks for posting that clip.

    Last I knew, I thought he was playing Epifani cabs. Maybe he's switched.

    that cab looks like a 2x10 to me.
