John Patitucci

One of the top bassists of the 1990s (on both acoustic and electric), Patitucci's speed, very clear tone, and versatility are quite impressive. He started playing bass when he was 11, grew up in Northern California, and in 1978 moved south near Los Angeles. He played with Gap Mangione (1979) while going to college, and during 1982-1985 worked in Los Angeles with Tom Scott, Robben Ford, Stan Getz, Larry Carlton, Dave Grusin, Ernie Watts, Freddie Hubbard, and others, in addition to becoming a studio musician. In 1985, he gained a high profile when he joined Chick Corea as a regular member of both the Elektric and Akoustic bands. Patitucci toured and recorded extensively with Corea and made a series of his own diverse sessions for GRP and Stretch (although he is not as strong a composer as he is a bassist). John Patitucci left the Elektric Band in the early '90s but continued working with Corea on an occasional basis. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

I am not very familiar with this artist. Heart of the Bass, the song, reminds me of Victor Wooten on Victor's solo albums.

Great musician. Sounds just as good to me on electric or acoustic bass. I dig his contribution s to Wayne Shorter's quartet presently and Chick Corea's Elektric Band back in the day (love that first album). I briefly met him and Brian Blade at a Q&A panel and special concert at the Art Museum in Philly and got him to autograph the album insert from the first Elektric Band album. It seemed like he was surprised to see it.

One of the baddest bass players on the planet. From both, a jazz and classical jazz perspective. Whether he is playing upright or electric bass with Chick, Danilo, Roy Haynes or his wife Sachi, he is an accomplished , masterful musician.

some of my favorite stuff is the work he did with Wayne Shorter, Bryan Blade and Danilo Perez, that quartet was on a whole other planet, unbelievable

"jumped onstage while he was tuning for the 2nd set"
And he was probably thinking "where is security?"
