    Stuff like this was why Stanley Clarke was my hero for years.

    Nice, Lopsy Lu is one of these tunes I learned in high school and if I start riffing on it people will look at me and go "What's that? That's cool." Saw him in Norfolk with RTF and again with his band in 70's.

    If you haven't heard it in awhile check out RTF Where have I Known You Before? That album really stands the test of time and still is fabulous.

    LOL! Trying to play "stump the drummer" with Billy Cobham is always a losing proposition! :)

    ...this is from the Downbeat Awards show in Chicago, 1976?
    The cd was just issued. Mine is in the mail.
    For some reason, Dusty Groove already had it. Amazon sez the issue date is Aug. 24.

    A UK TB-er from yesteryear sent me a (video) disc of this show. Rashaan Roland Kirk was worth the price of admission!
    This Stanley piece is great, too!

    It’s great seeing Sonny Fortune, very under-appreciated cat.

    Sorry, I was watching the Stanley Clarke in another thread, he's in about 28 minutes in this video.
