    Just got back from the "Kooza" show, and it was fantastic as usual. I noticed the bassist was playing what appeared to be a Sadowsky NYC Modern 5, trans-cherry finish over flamed maple, with maple fretboard, and I thought to myself "I bet he's on TB, or at least someone on TB knows him and his story". :) Immediately afterward, I thought "I'm such a damned nerd, scoping out the bass while there are acrobats onstage." The bassist also had a pretty sweet envelope filter during one of the acts, so I was hoping to find out which one he was using.

    Any clues, or is it you? :p

    The one that is currently in Portland OR. It might have been that Darell Craig Harris, it did look kind of like him--but the face was less easy to categorize and identify than the bass. :p

    I saw La Nouba in Orlando in June. The band was kicking major booty but they were inside two towers on the sides of the stage. All we could see was their silhouettes.

    My wife and I have seen at least 5 different Cirque shows and the bass (and the rest of the music for that matter) is always outstanding. :bassist:

    See that's what I would have thought, based on his myspace and related web pages. They're all about his work in Japan.
