stanley is the baddest bass man ive ever seen. please give me your review when you have time or if your on your death bed again.
Off of death bed for now.
Stanley was in fine form – what he can do with a stand-up acoustic bass is beyond belief. He travels with two young guns on the drums and keyboards. Don’t know the names, but the drummer in particular – a 22 year old - was easily holding his own with the master of the bass. A 90 minute show, seemed like about 35. We definitely wanted more. We may go back today or tomorrow – we’re checking on tickets when the box office opens in a few hours.
This is the second time in three years we have seen him at Yoshi’s here in Oakland. The first time we had seats on the lip of the stage, about four feet from SC. Last night we were about ten feet back. A great venue for jazz.
