bass player extraordinaire….

bass player extraordinaire……yes….i like the way that sounds…and describes our real/virtual band member, andrew kopr, most appropriately…..like guitarist gary wooten ,our other member of the band, we met online at a musicians hangout….we collaborated a couple of times on some tracks and i became  a fan of his playing as i got into his music and style…..he is a versatile rock/jazz/funk meister with incredible feel for the music…….he complains about his playing chops/practice time…..and …i wonder ….what is he talking about …he just breezed through the tracks…sounding great…funky lines….fluid playing……brrrrrr…..makes me scared to hear him when he feels like he is up to snuff…hehhehhehhe….he is also a fine composer….he submitted a track for the album, that was mighty funky and tasty..gary and i  had a blast playing our parts…..much fun indeed…..drew’s lines were funky, tight and his solo spot marvelous….there was a pretty interesting interlude with a hip chord progression that i just loved playing over….the mans got it together………he is an attorney in atlanta…but maybe we can get him to quit his day job if the album goes platinum…hehhehhehhe………here is an example of some of his melodic playing on one of the albums tracks….Drew

    Bass player extraordinaire indeed. Before I got done reading Mcboy’s new blog entry on Andrew I said yeah and he always beats himself up over his playing which is what probably drives him to come up with the fine playing that the rests of us hear. Drew you are the man on the bass for sure.
