Great rhythm sections

Recommended Posts

Always loved this rhythm section. Forget the cheesy poppy MSM stuff though and check out Gloria’s album from whence this particular tune came - Mi Tierra. Just wonderful stuff if you like more authentic Latin American vibes.

 

One of my favourite albums (still). Chock full of great musicians, including a few Latin heavy weight names.

The arrangements are terrific as well.

👍

Cachao was in there somewhere if I remember correctly?

he could be trying to be clever referring to the fact that Keef did indeed play bass on several seminal stones choons. :)

 

I stand corrected, I wasn't aware of that fact.  My apologies.

+ another for Garibaldi/Prestia, Edwards/Thompson, Modeliste/Porter, Sly & Robbie but one of my fave pairings is Mark King and Phil Gould.

Alternatively, it could be argued that Keith was indeed part of the rhythm section as a guitarist. It's not an exclusive club 😀

My point exactly. Although he did play bass on some of their great stuff, Keith and Charlie have always been the foundation of the band’s trademark sound. Without either I don’t think the band could function.

This is not meant to disrespect Bill Wyman or Darryl Jones in any way, both fantastic players 🙂

Very good point about the rhythm section not being confined to us and the tub thumpers. I always play well with one of my fave drumming buddies, by well I mean I play less because I'm playing with him and it's what we're doing together that benefits the band. However I also have another friend, a rare gem who is a rhythm guitarist through and through. Sure he can solo but get this - he doesn't want to! He loves locking down the rhythm and when the three of us are together my oh my. It's a powerful engine.
