Free

, comment by moephan
moephan This free never gets any attention. It's one of my favorite versions out there.

It's not type II and it's not 30 minutes long.

What it is, is a perfect example of what fall '99 was all about. Coming in the 2 slot of set one, you wouldn't expect such a perfect jam platform so early in the show, but that's exactly what this is.

As soon as the jam starts trey drops back to create a few background loops to set the atmosphere. Mike is out front right out of the gate. This free is a sign of Mike's genius. A patient, yet beautiful exercise in bass mastery. Showing off in a humble way. It's not over the top. It's just perfect.
