I just saw Russell Malone and his trio with Martin Bejerano on piano, Montez Coleman on drums, and Tassili Bond on bass. Those guys were great! I have heard Russ on c.d for awhile but had never seen him and he was amazing. Tassili Bond is a great bass player and he was so cool. He would just sit in the groove and wouldn't leave! I guess the guy is a substitute teacher too lol. So I figured if he wanted to just teach I would take his chops from him lol. Check out Russ' new c.d Playground with all those guys on it.
