    Sigh - another one. The legendary Brazilian bassist Arthur Maia has passed away at 56.

    I knew him through his work with Gilberto Gil but know he played with a long list of legends.

    Will try to post some of his best here shortly.

    Man, he's been one of my favourite bassists since I first saw him with Gilberto Gil in 1998. A great player. Melodic, groovy, chops - the complete package. I'm sorry to hear of his death (especially at such a comparatively young age).
