Ok–one more music video

Apparently I’m on a tear this evening. Here’s virtuoso bassist Marcus Miller with his band, playing “Papa was a Rolling Stone.” Nina and I saw Miller playing with Miles Davis during his Tutu period, at the Paramount in Seattle–must be more than 20 years ago now. Possibly the most astonishing jazz concert I ever attended. I remember that Miller broke a string during the concert (a bass string!), switched to a different instrument in the middle of a song, then switched back after someone replaced the string, and kept the string in tune while it did its initial stretching.
