    I just read through the Berry Oakley Thread and all of the debate comparing Berry to Jaco and I remembered seeing this clip:

    To me the combination of Stanley, Lenny White, and The Allman Brothers is just about face melting. I'm a huge Oteil Fan too.

    He really should spin the filter knob back a quarter turn, at least.

    Wow, maybe Stanley is going through an amp or a pre-amp that he's not used to, because he usually has a much better sound than that.

    I've never much cared for Stanly's electric bass tone. In fact I can recall when 'Return to Forever' came out marveling at his playing but just never warmed up to it like I did when I heard Jaco's first album. In hindsight I think part of it was Jaco's tone and his funk. I like him (Stanly) much better on upright.

    There are three parts to Liz Reed. This is the third I realized after watching most of it. I was hoping for interplay with Stanley and Oteil. Oteil, and everyone else, were happy to lay back and let Stanley do his thing. Big smiles from Oteil. Of course Oteil did his thing after Stanley left. Cool seeing him on stage with the Allman Bros. I'll check out parts 1 and 2 this evening.
