  • My favorite.
  • http://www.last.fm/group/MusicDish <-- all about independent artists!
  • I meant "Bass Desires" (one of the album titles is "Second Sight")
  • Saw a show with Eskine, playing with Chick Corea's Akoustic Band,along with John Patitucci. ...awesome. Check out a band he played with called "Second Sight" with John Scofield .
  • Erskine has been my favorite drummer since I started playing 2 years ago. Star is definitely in my top 3 album list. The DVD with Mintzer, Abercrombie, and Pattatucci is inspiring. I'm glad I wasn't there because I would have rushed the stage. And I love the solo in New Old Age!
  • Erskine + Jaco @ WR = WOAH! :O
