Whilst in the Kings Lynn leg of my sick bed sojourn I shared the ward with a very nice chap, Dave Sugar. Poor sod was in a worse state than me but we chatted about all sorts of stuff, finding that we were interested in so many common things. Not least, music.
He is, for instance, the only person I've known in decades who not only knows of Indo-Jazz Fusions, but has the very same album!
But he gave me a name of a bass player of whom I had never heard. Eberhard Weber. I figured, with little to do for a while, I'd look him up on youtube. ........Lordy, lordy, what utter magic. And I'm a fussy sod where music is concerned and even more so with the bass.
If you want to smile, cry and make your day as good as you deserve it to be, try this, it won't take long:-www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2xcb3lW8ZM
Go to 5:30 for just a few seconds if you're short of time and tell me you haven't been much improved by the experience.
Dave Sugar, thanks, mate. I hope we meet again in better circumstances.
