    I just heard a cut from this album on the radio; it was great.

    Here in Austin, we are having a film festival. One of the films showing is a documentary: Standing in the Shadows of Motown. The film is about the motown studio musicians.

    Some of the musicians were on a local morning show this morning promoting the movie; as well they will perform after the screening. Wow.

    Anyhoo, there is a new live CD accompanying the movie. The cd is a collection of covers with new singers: Ben Harper, Meshell Ndege Ocello, et al.

    I heard the Ben Harper track; it was great. The horns, guitar, drums were great.

    I was tempted top call in and ask about the Carol Kaye controversy.

    I think at the Paramount (7th and Congress);
    they frequently debut movies there,
    there would be room for a musical act,
    musical acts have played there before.

    If you care to go, you could check times, etc., either at paramount's or chronicle's web site.

    Take care,

    I picked that C.D. up a couple weeks back...great stuff! Bob Babbit plays on most of it and a couple tracks with Jamerson, including a instrumental version of 'Bernadette' that shows just how much of a badass Jamerson was!................and no Carol Kaye:D I've said this before.....but IMHO Bob Babbitt captured the essence of Jamerson's style more than any of the other bassist in the Motown stable.........including ones one the west coast;)
