    That was not the house bassist. Lovergirl is also one of my favorite basslines to rip up :hyper:

    Did James Jamerson Jr. play the line to Lovergirl? (Great tune!)

    Just curious...

    EDIT: allmusic.com lists Jamerson Jr. and Nathan East on the record, but does not specify who played on the track.

    Endorsing artist:see profile.
    For the last couple of years Teena's touring Bassist has been the very talented and Funky Fatcat(he's a Big guy with a big Groove)
  6. I thought Teena Marie recorded / performed with Rick James...???

    Gallien Krueger for the last 12 years!
    Back in the day she did, but Rick didn't play the basslines. His bass player in the Stone City Band actually played the bassline to "Square Biz", one of the funkiest ever!
