I had the great pleasure of working with Chick for many years while we were both at GRP. Working both the Akoustic Band and the Elektric Band (-w- Patitucci) new releases. Return to Forever was the first jazz concert I ever attended at Simpson College, Indianola, IA (-w- Stanley on bass). In my humble opinion, with few exceptions, John & Stanley may be the greatest bass players ever, due in large part to the fact that they double on both acoustic and electric bass so marvelously. Take it from me, the two instruments are more dissimilar than one might imagine.
