Good!  This gives me hope.  It seems Rabbit is saying pretty much the same
I'm more than willing to give Pino a fresh listen to.  I just don't hear it
on the M4P's from itunes.
And, is it just a "wash" of sound, or does it show distinct runs and

No, I'm not expecting Pino to mimic John's trademark treble (Mettle) bass
That's not it.
I'm just looking for a good reason to be interested in the bass portion of
the music, again.  The "wash" just doesn't do it for me.

One of the reviews, I think it might have been Rabbit's, states that Pino is
starting to copy John's bass lines verbatim.
I wouldn't mind hearing that.  A good tip of the hat to John.  Can Pino
really pull it off though?

Hey, thanks for the report John.
