Happy New Year

This is a great little motivator. I have actually witnessed something similar. Steve Gilmore was playing in Atlantic City in the mid-eighties with Keely Smith. He has the beautiful, huge, blonde-wood bass on which he makes a beautiful big, round sound. Afterwards, I went to a smaller club where a quartet was playing. I felt so sorry for the bass player because his bass sounded like he was playing it with a chainsaw. A little later Steve walked into the club and sat in. And he got his huge, beautiful sound out of the bass. The instrument can be very nice, but it's not the essence of playing.

* a fantastic album !
It makes me think to Beaudelaire's words in "Les fleurs du Mal"/The Flowers of Evil" :
"Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté." /There ,everything is Order and Beauty, calm, luxury and pleasure
