Alphonso’s silky, but authoritative bass lines had placed him in a class with fellow peers Stanley Clarke and Steve Swallow as one of the best up and coming bassists of the early 70s.
Beginning with Mysterious Traveller’s Weather Report songs like Cucumber Slumber and Scarlet Woman just hinted the brilliance of what he could do. Alphonso would appear on two more albums for Weather Report before he would leave the band to work with drumming virtuoso Billy Cobham.
Alphonso also happens to be one of the first musicians to introduce the chapman stick to the music public.
