Bob Cranshaw- Master bassman!

Part of the treat last night at the Sonny Rollins concert was to also see and hear Bob Cranshaw play the bass. If you love the Blue Note lps as much as I do his name invariably pops up. For example he played the bass on Lee Morgan's The Sidewinder and Grant Green's Idle Moments (one of my favorite LPs). Here's a picture of Cranshaw with Bobby Broom on guitar. The band also included Clifton Anderson on trombone and Kimait Dinizulu on percussion with Kobie Watkins on drums. This was the same band that played on Sonny Rollins' last cd "Sonny, Please" with the exception of Kobie Watkins replacing Steve Jordan on the drums.
