Don't know you've read this

but it was a canny read.


No, I haven't, but I'd like to and I will look for it. Thanks for the tip Tom!

Never heard of Andrew Bird. That clip is pretty damn awesome! Gotta go check him out.

Not any less than Ric Sanders, in my book.


I fundamentally disagree Felix

Ric played in the jazz fusion band 2nd Vision with John Etheridge and of course with Soft Machine

He was fundamentally a jazz rock violinist who could play folk too

Swarb was at least as brilliant but a folkie

David LaFlamme's tribute to Sugarcane Harris' fifties duo.



It was on the (to me) indelible CBS Rock Buster sampler and I played it to death as a teen, air fiddle and all

My favourite Sugarcane moments are not with Zappa, but with the John Mayall's drumless quartet from 1970 (also featuring Harvey Mandel and Larry Taylor)

This is a superb album and Sugarcane is on fire!

The tub-less albums are superb- The Turning Point being my fave

L Shenkar [sic] in action with his invention - the stereophonic double violin (known as the LSD - L.Shankar Double Violin)

The lad's proper name is Shankar Lakshminarayana but he is referred to as L. Shankar and later just Shankar

Enjoy

Shankar's contribution to Echo and the Bunnymen's Porcupine, in particular 'The Cutter', is fantastic.

Does a viola count?

Geoffrey Richardson, Caravan on the superb album For Girls that Grow Plump in the Night

One of many viola jokes:

How do you keep your violin from being stolen? Put it in a viola case.

Although far from a virtuoso, I have always enjoyed Ric Grech's playing (Family, Blind Faith, Baker's Airforce)

I love the fragility of his playing

The solo on Sea of Joy is a delight (2:45)

And this is of my favourite Jean-Luc contributions on a Zappa album (after 2:35)

Listen to those tubs!
