    Well I loaded some MP3's at www.mp3.com/diminbass
    One is solo with the Boomerang and one is bass, looper and a wonderful drummer Tristan Sullivan (T Luke) playing drums and Fender Rhodes. Please give them a listen. Your comments are always welcome

    Hope your not looking for a technical analyzation of the work, I don't have enough knowledge to say much there. However I have to say that Little Sister made me feel good, good, good. Very nice tune. Get's me in a souful strut kinda mood :)

    Huna Funk,

    I were to think if you got to technical you'd see how simple it really is. More importantly, it made you feel good and for that I am very happy. I'll post some more as soon as they're ready. BTW the drummer/pianist on that piece lives in Pittsfield, MA (I noticed that you're from Worcester)

    Small world :)

    I don't make it out to the Berkshires much, a lot of beautiful New England scenery out there though. I dig Tristan's playing on the Fender Rhodes, I think it complements the bass playing really well. I Haven't been able to hear Big Droppings yet though, the download keeps cutting out on me about 20 seconds into it, I'll keep trying.


    Side Note: I should have a couple bass solo ditty's up on MP3.com in about a month if all goes as planned in the studio. That being said it should be a little over two months :)

    I'll be sure to link ya when they're up.
