    Wow, talk about a Jaco clone haha! Seriously, Bireli is freakin' smokin' here. He played those Jaco licks just as Jaco would've played em', In fact I sit here listening to it as I type I could swear I'm listenin' to Jaco. Bireli Lagrene is just a phenomenal musician it seems on which ever instrument he plays, it seems the Jaco tutelage helped him a little on the bass. Whoa.

    This is pretty awesome. :oops:
  5. Gotta love a piece that puts you in the groove as soon as it starts.
    Very nice.

    Nice. Really good player. Is that a defretted neck with inlays? Can't say I've ever seen a fretless with inlays before.

    Wait......is he a guitarist or a bassist?? Seems he's both! There's a bunch of vids of him playing guitar.

    Very nice playing, to be sure ... but for some reason I am uncomfortable with such Jaco-apeing, in the same way as I feel uncomfortable listening to guitarists that sound remarkably like SRV. Obviously this guy is a very talented musician, but I can't help thinking - thousands of hours spent on practice to sound very much like someone else?!?! I mean, Jaco's son plays bass too and sounds a bit like his Dad, but has his own 'voice' going on.

    It's hard to put my finger on the exact qualities involved here....:help:

    Look up Richard Sinclair from Hatfield And The North.

    He's actually guitarist who, as a child prodigy, started out playing gypsy-jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt, and then branched out from there: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:difexqt5ldte~T0

    Birelli is playing bass.

    An interesting tidbit isthat Jaco and him collaborated in the 80s a lot and Jaco gave him bass lessons.

    That bass he is playing was a gift. I can't remember if it was Jaco or Jerry Jemmott who gave it to him.

    Jaco's first electric was a 68 Jazz with a rosewood neck and block inlays with the pickguard taken off to look like his hero's bass, Jerry Jemmott.
  14. that is nothing short of PHENOMINAL!

    it's Jaco the way I would have loved to hear Jaco sound...(Jaco with a decent tone :) )

    and that sax player, he flat out smokes!
