Staff has been one of my main guys from the word 'go.' Growing up in Hartford, Connecticut I used to see him often with guys like Louis Hayes, Woody Shaw and Frank Strozier. His playing on Dexter Gordon's Homecoming, in particular, was my textbook for ass-kicking walking bass. I just gave him a lookup on the web, and lo and behold, from Paris, France, www.StaffordJames.com pops up. Staff tells his exciting story in detail. Great site, great player. Any other fans 'round here?
