    Man, that guy is just seconds away from carpal tunnel syndrome. I mean just look at the angle on his left hand wrist!

    But other than that, nice playing and a great sound.

    Jesus Muerte said it best.

    That is a great version of "Tracy", but the angle of his wrist might have him singin' the blues later down the road, because he won't be able to play 'em.

    I'd be more concerned about the angle of his baseball cap...

    Well, I'm not concerned about both. Just happy the Warwick sounds so much better 8)

    For anyone who doesn't get "growl"

    Oh god, that bongo sounds like a nightmare gone totally wrong! Anyone who still says Warwicks sound worse than Music Mans has no clue.

    That bongo sounds horrendous! Hope the guy playing it heard the Warwick version and sold his MM immediately

    The Bongo has got to be the ugliest thing that ever was played.

    ...and to think BMW had a hand in the design!

    Yes Greg, it seems like some of the great ones had some real struggles.

    Jaco was on his way to becoming the Duke Ellington of the modern era, not to mention one of the hottest bass players ever to pick up the instrument.

    Yes, Lex I think he got there too. No doubt he got there as a bass player. The composer side of him was a side that not enough people got to see, and that's a shame.

    For those of us who did see and hear it, we were the lucky ones.
