If you are not familiar with this guy, you better axe somebody! Been playing bass since he was 4, one of the last people to work with Prince, dude is only 27. I found him playing transposed rants on youtube before realizing he wasn't just some kook (but he is a kook for sure). He played some latenight sets in NOLA during Jazzfest recently, I saw Adam Deitch posting excitedly about playing with him for the first time. So yeah, he needs to be on Jam Cruise. For stuff like this:

Quote:
While Thomas is right-handed, he plays left-handed upside down on a right-handed bass guitar, which allows him to use heavy string bending on the upper strings. Thomas' slapping style/technique is unique because he is executing everything upside-down, but he still uses the thumb for slaps and fingers for pops. He also uses fingers and palm muting to create a warm, muffled timbre and have a little more control over the length of notes.


Yes.
