Lovely! When I was getting into jazz originally, my bass teacher gave me NHØP's "Those Who Were" to listen to - still one of my favourite albums.

His influence on Jaco was massive. I love this track. Two incredible players and how it resolves at the end is beautiful.

I’ve saw him a few times at Ronnie Scott’s, once on two consecutive nights in duo with guitarist Joe Pass. The interplay was incredible, which was why I went back a second night. His intonation, timing and subtlety was superb. Indeed, one of the greatest double bass players.

What a great gig that must have been. In the presence of genius it’s tempting to try and analyse what they do, but sometimes it’s better to forget we’re musicians and just enjoy. I remember seeing a performance by Christian McBride (in amplified) and it was incredible. (Didn’t stop a few people on the audience falling asleep, mind you)

On the second night I stayed to the end of their second set and got to speak with Neils over a pint at the bar .... a very nice man.
