You live longer when you know that groove is in the heart.

Hard to pick my favorite Bootsy period.  I could go with some old JBs or some classic P-Funk but in terms of pure weirdness it's hard to top Praxis

I saw this as a kid "live" on TV and, good lord is this good.

Hiram Bullock - an absolute motherfarker.  He recorded with Sting in the late 80s.  Here is an amazing break.

I had to look at comments to confirm that it was Carla Bley on piano. I saw her in 2007 with Charlie Haden under the Liberation Front Orchestra. Went to see Charlie Haden but Carla Bley's piano work was great.

ippolit: Carla Bley on piano. I saw her in 2007 with Charlie Haden under the Liberation Front Orchestra. Went to see Charlie Haden but Carla Bley's piano work was great.


her "Fleur Carnivore" CD from about that era (1990, 1992ish) is a fantastic work.  I have  a few other things she and Steve Swallow did.

but yeah the thing about Night Music was, how Lorne Michaels, I believe, or his seconds, dreamed up a musical version of SNL;  they shot on the same stages, but instead of 7-10 comedy sketches, it was 5-7 bands/artists, and usually culminated in an "all hands on deck" jam.

Carla Bley.  Bootsie.

Who could have scripted that?

THe show only lasted 1-2 seasons but, "Sunday Night Music", or whatever it was called, was my jam.  I will never forget Bootsie giving us some HEALING POWER.
