    I'm searching for different versions of the chicken (the song of PW Ellis) by other bands/bassplayers than jaco pastorius. I think I have most of the Jaco recordings - does there exist a Jaco recording with a bass-solo? Can you give some names of bands/bassplayers that made a recording of this fantastic song (I found allready one crazy recording at this site of Mysteriy Feet).

    ...but my favorite version of The Chicken is by Maceo Parker.

    Mystery Feet's Craig Garfinkel is a long-time poster at Talk Bass.
    I picked up his band's cd at www.cdbaby.com, IIRC.
    Very cool band.

    I agree!
     
  5. Jaco does a wicked solo in the chicken on his instructional dvd i think.

    Craig's group is the bomb... their version of Dragonsgate is one of my favorite as well.
