I'm not sure why but one thing struck me more than anything today on this walk. Rob Amster was an amazing acoustic bass player and jazz musician.

Very cool playlist, mjr! Love all the cuts from Goldenhair there, the reminder of tunes I'd forgotten like Dream Clock. and the always- transporting Blue in Green. What a wonderful soundtrack for a walk.

Anybody else got a great KE playlist to share?

And YES! Rob *was* an amazing acoustic bass player and jazz musician.

Here's what you said about Rob in 2008, which I wholeheartedly endorse and remember for its eloquence.

The sound he gets from his bass is as thick as a 150 year-old oak tree. It goes right into the center of your chest. His intonation is dead on the center and when you hear them in person with only one take, you know how "on" he is. Also in the live setting you can hear what a great and creative soloist he is, unfortunately not getting to stretch out as much on the records. Another thing that is amazing is Rob's ability to set down such an interesting and successful groove with the drummer du jour no matter what the style.
