Thankful That I'm Wowed: Calle 54
My friend Laura once said she wanted to raise her kids in a small town because she didn't want them to fall into the trap of big-city kids from New York or D.C. -- the ones who at age seventeen feel like they've seen it all.
I remember this on occasions when I see something that makes me grin, sway and go "wow." Like Michel Camilo's From Within, from the exceptional Calle 54:
Note: At around 5:28, the producer pushes the sliders back up on Anthony Jackson's six-stringed bass. At 5:58, Jackson starts acting like there's two of him.
Thanks for sharing this, Phil! I love seeing musicians who clearly love what they are playing. Happy Thanksgiving!
