    The more I listen to him, I more I think he's a genius. Who else is a fan?

    A fan.

    What I want to know is... who is that on the album cover?

    Looks like Miles to me but apparently it’s him.

    Thundercat’s great. But, is he a bass player or is he a guitarist playing a bass? Not an anti-6 string comment at all; I just listen to his playing and the notes I hear sound like guitarist choices. I actually have no idea of his background; I should read up.

    His voice and his compositional approach remind me of a certain part of Level 42’s sound - the stuff where Mike Lindup took the lead.
