    a few hundred views, whaaaaaaa?

    for my money the best 'player' alive -there are others but his touch, feel, dynamics, etc.

    oh, and he SINGS while doing it!

    The man is crazy talented.
  4. Yes, truly a startlingly versatile and amazingly gifted player - and he happens to be so kind, gentle, humble - really one of the nicest people you will ever meet.

    I hate to say it - but it's possible singing in his native tongue has held him back a bit from mainstream popularity. People like to sing along.

  5. An incredibly skilled player. Love his work with Metheny, if it's not too cliche a thing of me to say -- but it's true. :) He's one of my very few all-time faves.

    This is amazing! Thank you for posting
  10. He's amazing. Does anyone have that video where he sang every note he was playing on the bass, simultaneously?

    Amazing talent. I've been a fan of his and his crazy diminished runs for 6 years.

    You mean this video? This is the one I saw in college that made me an instant fan.
