Oh, sorry. I didnt know there was a restriction in posting in an open forum based on what was happening with a player being discussed. Your post was unfortunately something I was resigned to having to read as inevitable...someone that only reads what you think or want to read. I said I thought she was talented and a very good bass player. I wrote it, you can read it *again* above in my previous post, and above in this post. I agree she has a style. Her being good enough to do the gig * has nothing to do with what I'm saying*. There are plenty of people good enough to do the gig in the world. I repeat: she had fast- track access in addition to being good enough. You and others might then say "so what?" Thats fine. If it means nothing or says nothing to you then no problem.
