    I am STOKED!
    Mr. Landers put the TL in "Peavey TL-5" :D and is a great player. BC is one of the all time greats in my book. First time hearing either of them life.

    I don't know Tim, but Billy's a monster on drums.

    It should be great! Landers did time with Cobham back in the 80’s, I’ve always dug his playing.

    BC was indeed monstrous - so much authority in his groove and in every hit. Super musical drummer.
    The band was tight. The reed player mostly played bassoon! - through a synth or very synthy effects. He played a bit of soprano sax too, but mostly bassoon, which was kind of cool.
    Tim Landers held down the bottom. Nothing flashy. Absolutely a team-first approach, and very solid. Though I secretly hoped for a bit more flash - I know he's got it in him.

    Wow, I had know idea Tim was back with Billy. I was aware of their work in the 80s, and I was aware of Tim's work in the 70s when he was still in (or fresh out of) Berklee, used to hear him playing in local jazz clubs around Boston. Great player.

    I'm really intrigued by the idea of Billy & Tim & an electric bassoon player!
